Thank you for the question.
Liquid stool and discomfort in the stomach can occur when your digestion is disrupted. Irritation due to consumption of certain types of food and drinks (including coffee) may cause this complaint. However, other factors, such as food / drink allergies, carbohydrate malabsorption, dyspepsia, inflammation of the intestine, gastroenteritis, irritable bowel syndrome, poisoning, etc. can also cause your complaints. Sometimes, your complaint can also occur related to hormonal disorders, drug side effects, psychological disorders, metabolic disorders, and several other diseases.
If your bowel movements still occur around 1-3 times a day, and the discomfort in your stomach is even mild in intensity, often this condition is not dangerous. However, if it is very annoying, it would not hurt you to see yourself directly to a doctor or internist. Several types of drugs can be given by your doctor so that your complaints improve. If not, you may later be advised to undergo an ultrasound examination, stool test, and so on.
In the meantime, don't consume coffee and other caffeinated drinks (like tea, soda, energy drinks, chocolate) excessively. Expand to rest while compressing a warm stomach that feels uncomfortable. Drink plenty of water and eat foods that are easily digested. Limit eating spicy, oily, coconut milk and gassed foods first. Not only that, do also exercise, do not stress too much, and also do not carelessly take medicine without doctor's advice.
Hope this helps ...
