Hi, thank you for posting.

I have gone through your query and I understand your concerns.

Your symptoms are suggestive of IBS(Irritable bowel syndrome).

To treat IBS you should follow these precautions:
1. Eliminate spicy foods, fried foods and acidic foods from your diet.
2. Do not drink alcoholic drinks, carbonated drinks, coffee and milk.
3. Quit smoking cigarettes(if you do smoke).
4. Reduce the amount of fiber in your diet.
5. Take antacid medicines such as Nexium 40 mg 1 pill daily, for 2 weeks..

You should contact your gastroenterologist to discuss about the treatment and dosages.

All the best.
Dr. Behar.
