Brief Answer: Hi Detailed Answer: Hi Thanks for posting your query on XXXXXXX There can be many reasons for this health issue. One reason can be that the restaurant food may not be cooked in clean drinking water. While we use clean water at home for cooking purposes Second reason can be the anxiety or exertion associated with eating outside. Thus it may be a symptom of irritable bowel syndrome. The reason for anxiety can be many like extra-expenditure, fear of unhygienic food, eating out with friends leading to emotional turbulence, etc. Third reason can be the use of some chemicals (soda bicarb, etc) being used in cooking foods in the restaurants. If you feel better after eating home-cooked food, then take home-cooked food only. Hope it clears your doubt. Let me know if I can assist you further. Dr Vaishalee
