Brief Answer:
Indigestion

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

Based on description of your symptoms I believe you are having indigestion. It could be due to new type of food you recently consumed or due to lack of fiber in your diet.

Do take fiber supplements like psyllium husk, 2 spoons in milk or water at night. This will improve the digestion and prevent gas by forming fecal bulk.

Hope, I answered your query.
