Stomach cramps &  acid burns

I have painful stamach cramps &  sometimes feels I have gas bubbles trapped inside. I changed my diet to high fibre several times, but still no changes. I dont have normal stools at all &  only visit the toilet twice a week if I' m lucky. My stomach has burning sensations &  anti acid only work temporarily. i' m currently on a schedule4 drug, which is a 30 day treatment, but I still get reoccuring symptoms.

Hi Lee
Try the following:
Use soluble fibre instead of high fibre carbohydrates ( fruit and vegs, Fybogel orange)
Try Lactulose 1-15 ml each night and use a gliserine suppository to stimulate bowel movement if no stools for 2 days in a row.
Drink at least 6-8 glasses of water per day
Try using probiotics 3 times a day and Pankreoflat with each meal if very windy
What schedule 4 drug are you using?
