Doctor

A:   Hello
Welcome to Ask The Doctor.
You seem to be suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).
However, such chronic loose stools, should be evaluated for any cause like Persistent GI infection.
I would advise you to get Stool routine and Microscopy done.
If that is clear, you should start taking a combination of Pantoprazole and Domperidone.
Moreover, for pain you can take Mebeverine.
I hope it helps.
Stay Healthy.
