Constant abdominal pain, constipation, bowel problems, hot flushes with pain, bloated. Medical care required?

Dear doc, I am a 20 year old female, for the past 3 years, I have been having bowel problems, I constantly experience abdominal pain and discomfort. I am always constipated at night it is severe in that I feel great urge to go toilet and have hot flushes with pain, in the past 2 days. I pass stool 3 times at least every day. This only occurs before and after my periods. I have been suffering from depression , hence I am not sure if this is why. Sometimes I get bloated but not constantly. I sometimes feel so sick. Should I worry and seek medical care.

Gastroenterologist 's  Response
Thank you for your query.
With regards to your abdominal pain and discomfort it seem to be related with IBS ( irritable bowel syndrome).
So I would recommend changing your lifestyle like:
-Avoid spicy food, smoking and alcohol.
-Eat healthy food reach in fibers.
-Drink plenty of water.
-Increase your physical activity.
-Avoid stress.
-Use probiotics and simethicone.
If it's not enough consult your gastroenterologist.
Wishing you health.
