Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 5 months ago.


There are two possibilities here--

Irritable bowel syndrome

An H pylori bacterial stomach infection

For now I suggest oral probiotics, a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water twice a day, Nexium or Pepcid AC and omega 3 fatty acids supplements

But you should see your doctor about this to determine if you need a course of oral antibiotics

Please let me know if you need any more information
