Bloating,gas, diarrhea

Sir, I am suffering from bloating,gas and sometime diarrhea from last 4 weeks. Some more symptomps are bitter taste in mouth when i wake up in the morning although there is no heart burn.I went to a gastrologist and he said it is food poisioning. And gave some medicine but they didn't work.I done both stool routine and culture but reports are normal. And still i am suffering from bloating and gas and sometimes diarrhea.My weight is decresing day by day bcz i am taking normal food. Is it bcz of some parasite/bacteria.? Then why the reports r normal ? Can someone plz help me what should i do.bcz i don't want to take antibiotic untill reports shows bacteria.

Hello... Based on the history given by you, I think its either due to GIT infection or gastritis/ indigestion. If its GIT infection then antibiotics/ anti-amoebic drugs are helpful to control infection.... Probiotics/ lacto bacilli sachets can help in forming protective flora in the gut....if its gastritis then try eating several small meals instead of three large ones whenever you can...Avoid foods that irritate your stomach, especially those that are spicy, acidic, fried or fatty... avoid coffee,tea etc... Avoid Stress as it may make your gastritis symptoms worse...consider calming activities, such as meditation, yoga etc...sleep with head raised position and have dinner at least 2 hours before sleep..take over the counter medications with above..kindly consult a nearest physician for further management..
