Answer given below

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for the additional information.
Except for the duration, all the other features point towards irritable bowel syndrome.

She needs to undergo few tests like complete blood count, stool analysis and test for celiac disease.

Meanwhile she can take the following for relief-
1. T.Rifaximin 400 mg 1-1-1 for 2 weeks
2. T.Librax 0-0-1 for 4 weeks
3. C.VSL#3 1-0-0 for 4 weeks
