Hi, thank you for posting.

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

Your symptoms show that you suffer from IBS(Irritable bowel syndrome). The causes of this disease are unknown.

To treat IBS I recommend:
1. Eliminating spicy foods, acidic foods, fried foods, alcoholic drinks, carbonated drinks, coffee and milk from your diet.
2. Quitting smoking(if you do smoke).
3. Taking antacid medicines such as Nexium.

To confirm the diagnosis you need:
1. Fibrogastroendoscopy.
2. Abdominal ultrasound.
3. Liver function test.
4. Complete blood count.
5. Urine test.

Contact your gastroenterologist.

All the best.
Dr. Behar.
