Brief Answer: Detailed below. Detailed Answer: Hello. Thank you for the query. As you are youbg person, nothing serious shoukd be the reason. It can be sone chronic infection of intestines, bad diet or even pregnancy. I suggest you to start with probiotic intake, diet improvement(avoid fatty foods,spicy foods,alcohol, increase fiber rich products and mineral water intake). If it wont help in few days you should consult gastrologist. Gallstones, peptic ulcer should be considered. Abdominal ultrasound, blood work, urine analysis, stool test and gastroscopy should be done. Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions. Regards.
