Thanks for writing to Health Care Magic
The symptoms u presented with could possibly be due to irritable bowel syndrome. It is a psycho-somatic condition where we donot find any abnormality in the tests but still we have severe bowel symptoms. When other drugs fail, treatment by an antidepressant helps. Many patients had relief of these symptoms with antidepressant drugs. Try consulting a psychiatrist for ur problem.
Thanks and regards
