Hi and thanks for your question.
These type of symptoms are very common. Most of they time they do not actually mean there is an organic disease or condition associated. Most of the time is what is called Irritable Bowel Syndrome
. Before considering that its IBS however, a series of tests has to be asked and done by your gastroentrologist to ensure that there is no associated organic disease.
These tests might range from simple stool exams, cultures, colonoscopy
and other upper upper gastrointestinal tract endoscopic exams to abdominal ultrasounds. When all these are excluded, then symptoms could then be attributed to IBS.
Treatment includes both medications and lifestyle changes
Eating lots of vegetables and fruits, lots of fibre rich foods, exercise, avoiding gas producing foods, avoiding late night heavy meals could be helpful. As you wait to take an appointment with the gastroenterologist, drinking a lot of water and fluids and applying these measures could be of great help.
Thanks and hope this helps,
