Gastroenterologist 's  Response
Hello! Thanks for putting your query in HCM. I am a Gastroenterologist (DM).

I think you are suffering from IBS- D (Irritable bowel syndrome diarrhea predominant)

Few things to know about IBS:
1. Is a chronic disease which has relapsing and remitting course
2. It will never harm you even if it will persist for whole life
3. Stress, life events, and anxiety leads to aggravation of symptoms
4. Intestine becomes hypersensitive so even discomfort is perceived as pain
5. Increase gas production leading to abdominal fullness and bloating
6. No alarming features like weight loss, gastrointestinal bleeding, or fever

few medicines and advise which will help you are:
1. See whether milk or milk products if you are taking make your symptoms worse if yes, then please avoid them
2. Ayurvedic medicine by Himalaya, Gasex
3. Take antispasmodic like combination of dicyclomine, chlordiazepoxide like librax loperamide sos whenever loose stools are there
5. Take a course of pre and probiotics

I hope I have answered your query and this will help you. Remain in touch and get-well soon.
