Hi, thank you for posting.

I have gone through your query and I understand your concerns.

Your symptoms are caused by IBS(Irritable bowel syndrome).

To treat IBS you should follow these guidelines:
1. Eliminate spicy foods and acidic foods from your diet.
2. Avoid alcoholic drinks, carbonated drinks, coffee and milk.
3. Quit smoking cigarettes(if you do smoke).
4. Reduce the amount of fiber in your diet.
5. Take antacid medicines such as Nexium.

Contact your gastroenterologist.

All the best.
Dr. Behar.
