Thanks for posting your query.

After going through your query, I consider many possibilities which are causing discomfort to you like,

1. Irritable bowel syndrome.
2. Infection in GI Tract.
3. Digestive problems.
4. Poor eating habits, etc.

To reach exact diagnosis, you need evaluation by Gastroenterologist. You may need investigations like blood counts, blood sugar, urine examination, stool examination and ultrasound of abdomen as per need. Treatment will be followed as per the diagnosis.

Following measures may help in faster healing:

1. Take small frequent meals.
2. Avoid spicy and fried foods.
3. Drink plenty of fluids.
4. Do regular exercise and avoid stress.

Hope I have answered your query. Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
