Seems IBS

Detailed Answer:
Hi

Thanks for writing in

It is very likely that you are suffering from Irritable bowel syndrome along with an element of gastritis

I would prefer you manage your stress levels

In general, treatment guidelines agree with the addition of a proton pump inhibitor and a probiotic twice a day before breakfast and before dinner

Also do get back to me with your diet pattern, job profile, history of smoking or alcohol and medicines tried till date

Hope this helps
Regards
