Hello I have been having light yellow soft stools for 2 weeks now and I need to go frequently. I also experience gastric burning after I eat high in my stomach and then a constant uncomfortable feeling in my stomach until the food has been digested. I ve been tested for H Pylori and giardi but the results show nothing. I get quite a lot of bloating as well. I ve been trying to figure out what is causing it by eliminating certain foods but there doesn t seem to be a pattern to why it happens. I d love some advice.

Sir,I am 37 years old, male. I am suffering from severe gastric reflux and heartburn whether I eat or not. My throat and nose are always congested because of the gastric reflux. My stomach is always gaseous, bloated, and painful especially after eating. I feel like i have indigestion/malabsorption, almost all foods are hard for me, I tried eating vegetarian food but i started losing weight and become weak. Even with normal diet, I am about 10 kg down now from my peak weight a few years ago. Stomach pain has always been a problem for me. When I eat meat and certain types of vegetarian foods, I feel terrible pain especially at night. I have most of the time constipation and sometimes diarrhea. i have seen blood in stool. I am suffering from these problems since my childhood and are getting worse. Another problem is my tongue gets swollen and getting mouth sores and mouth becomes very dry when taking antibiotics and many other allopathic and ayurvedic medicine, so I am in a sad situation. And finally, I have been living with a lot of family stressors in my life, always. Thank you. Sincerely. Sebastian T
