it happens every now and then
Doctor: Dr.Saleem, Doctor replied 7 months ago

It sounds very much like IBS. Its a disorder with hypersensitive irritable gut , can present with bloating , pain abdomen , improvement with bowel movement and mucous in stool.

You should take mebeverine or hyoscyamine for painful cramps.

Take linseed for excessive gas .

If you experience diarrhoea then take imodium tablets and if constipation then senna or psylium.

You need to make dietary changes and follow the following recommendations too ;

https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/irritable-bowel-syndrome-ibs/treatment/

Few tests are required to rule out other possible causes ;

Complete blood count with ESR

Anti TTG to rule out celiac

Stool for ova / cysts for Giardia

Thyroid profile to rule out thyroid dysfunction.

I hope you found it useful.

Let me know if you have any more queries.

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
