Gastric issues

I am suffering with gastric issues like feeling of incomplete stool evacuation and frequent bowel movements, etc since long time. I have had gone under colonoscopy on 1st April. Reports are normal. After colonoscopy I was facing right abdominal and chest pain. My gastroenterologist said it is due to gas and acidity. My abdominal pain has some what reduced now. But chest discomfort still persists. I am taking antacids for that as suggested by my general physician. But since few days I am observing that my bowel movements are firm initially and later some what get loose. I suffer from anxiety. Such changes make me tensed. Please help.

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..With that fallow relaxation techniques like yoga, meditation,avoid alcohol, smoking, coffee, tea...have good sleep and develop healthy food habits..good luck.
