Your symptoms can be due to bacterial overgrowth syndrome. The diagnosis can be achieved by;

1) Hydrogen breath test

2) Bile acid breath test

3) Xylose breath test

4) Stool test.

You may also get a CT scan and an MRI of the abdomen for the evaluation.

Small intestinal diverticulosis / diverticulitis though not common may also be the possibility. Subacute intestinal obstruction, irritable bowel syndrome may also be looked in to the possibilities.

Treatment is by rifaximin which eradicates bowel overgrowth syndrome.

Probiotics too may help.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
