Hi,

The symptoms you have narrated here does not need any treatment. Therefore, first of all, do not take any medicine, but take care in eating, avoid taking oily, or fried food, avoid taking junk food, be patience while eating and do not speak at the time of eating. It does not matter even if you pass the stool three to four times a day. You can, of course, think about abdomen sonography. It does not seem to be any kind of illness, more or less it seems to be a functional kind of disorders.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Akhtarhusain, General & Family Physician
