Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders
Very common in my daily clinical practice. Characterized by disturbances in motility patterns and/or visceral hypersensitivity (pain).
Bottom line (pun intended): if you're bloated and farty, get treatment before your condition progresses.
Minor Symptoms: ➤ bloated, especially after eating ➤ loose stool ➤ constipation ➤ gas
Major Symptoms: ➤ acid reflux ➤ pain ➤ foul smelling gas ➤ abdominal distention
Severe Symptoms: ➤ foul smelling sticky stool ➤ sense of urgency to defecate ➤ hematochezia (blood or mucus in stool)
