Suffering from stomach cramps, nausea and sweating. Any idea what is going on ?

I am a 21 year old female. I am overweight but recently started weight watchers and already lost five pounds. I have been eating much healthier for the past two weeks. I take prozac, mircette, protonix, singulair, and acidophilus daily. My stools are soft but I have difficulty passibg them fully. It is also pellet-like but again not hard. I never feel like I m done going but cannot go anymore. I have also had bad stomach cramps at night with lots of gas, sometimes nausea and sweating too. Pepto bismol seems to help. Any idea what s going on ?

Hello welcome to health care magic
The Pepto bismol is a drug that is taken for Diarrhea and indigestion. That could be causing the incomplete evacuation in your case. Also if you are on reducing diet for weight loss you moght not be forming bulk in the stools. You must include lots of water, and fiber rich diet/ take a fiber supplement.
I would suggest you to take up prcticing few yogasanas regularly to help you feel good. Yogasanas like Pavana mukthasana, Shashankasan, Paschimottasan, Baddhakonasan, naukasan navasan will help to release the gas.
