Thanks for contacting with your health concern

1. going by your history and symptoms, the most probable diagnosis could be functional IBS [irritable bowel syndrome] which is a collection of symptoms ranging from bloating, diarrhea, abdominal pain, and constipation, so consult a Gastroenterologist for necessary examination and investigation [endoscopy, ultrasonography], till then

. maintain proper hydration [to prevent dehydration] and replace with electrolytes [avoid apple, grapes, pear juice which can make stomach upset].

- Avoid fiber-rich diet, since it can make bloating worse [instead take plain white rice, boiled potato, plain toast]
- avoid eating dairy products, spicy food, and spicy condiments, stay away from artificial sweeteners.
- take less of strong spices (ginger, garlic), oily-fried-fatty food and flatus producing foods (peas, beans, dals)
- eat slowly, avoid haste-irregular eating and sweet/heavy food which are difficult to digest and cause indigestion
- since it is a psychosomatic disease thus tranquility of mind is must, as such Medhya drugs or a mild tranquilizer are useful.

PS. If symptoms persist, call your doctor since it can be symptoms of underlying illness or infection which require medical intervention.
