GERD and IBS

Doc, I've been suffering from IBS and GERD past 3 years, I can feel the bowel in my intestine , they've been there for long , and at times I observe dark black stool. At times I also observe heartburn and all this makes me really uneasy. I cannot eat anything, wherever I eat something I start burping. I also have gas problem and I also have chronic constipation , please help me in recovering all these. I got my stool test, and blood test done, everything is fine, but still I have the existing problems.

Hello there..... Eat smaller meals. Avoid overeating by eating smaller meals. Don't lie down after a meal. Wait at least three hours after eating before lying down or going to bed..... Adding fiber to your diet increases the weight of your stool and speeds its passage through your intestines.... Eat at regular times. Don't skip meals, and try to eat about the same time each day to help regulate bowel function....
