Proctologist 's  Response
reduce your carbohydrate intake,
take a gluten free diet (google it)
if indian - avoid chana, maida and besan.
take plenty of oral fluids,
stop worrying and analysis yourself so much so that it distracts you from your day to day activities.
address the bloating and other issues only if they hamper your daily activities.
take care
