Brief Answer:
IBS, parasitic infection.

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for asking

I read your question and i understand your concern. Bowel disturbances, gas, indigestion, stomach pain every 3rd day for the last few months with raised eosinophil count mostly favours some parasitic or allergic bowel condition. Anthelmintics should be tried.

Possibility of an irritable bowel syndrome can not be ruled out . Modifying diet and lifestyle will help. Eat small frequent meals, avoid spices, fatty foods, dairy products, processed & canned foods, etc. Prefer natural foods and vegetables and use peppermint and yogurt in every meal. See if the symptoms improve. Talk to your doctor and let them decide what is best for you.

I hope it helps. Take good care of yourself and dont forget to close the discussion please.
