Hi Dear,

Welcome to HCM.

Understanding your concern. As per your query you have symptoms of stomach bloating and tenderness in the stomach which could be due to lack of fibres in diet, irritable bowel syndrome , intolerance to dairy products or other food items, eating too fast, overgrowth of bacteria in the small bowel, giardiasis or some medications. Need not to worry and take few preventive methods. I would suggest you to avoid food like dairy products , drink warm water , do light exercises and eat light and non spicy food. If condition doesn't get well then consult gastroenterologist for proper examination. Doctor may prescribe H2 blockers , proton pump inhibitor along with antibiotics and anti inflammatory. You should take diet rich in laxatives and probiotics.

Hope your concern has been resolved.

Get Well Soon.

Best Wishes,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari
