Stomach Cramps Every Morning And After Dinner And It Is Difficult To Hold Back Bowel Movements?
Hello, r nI want to ask I think I have a digestive problem. My stomach is almost always heartburn every morning and often heartburn also after dinner. R n r nWhat is the problem is that I find it difficult to hold the chapter if I already have a heartburn, especially when I am on a long trip and there is no toilet. R n r nI have been trying to live a healthy life by going to the gym 3x a week and eating yogurt for probiotics. But this still happens a lot. Is this IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) or some other disease? What should I do to prevent it? R n r nThank you.
