Hi, I am a 31 year old male. I have had a series of digestion problems after antibiotics for pheumonia in the beginning of the year. Most of the symptoms have gone except for a werid experience when I put pressure with my hand below the rib cage, I breath out slowly and i can feel and hear fluid being released from somewhere in that region, there is no pain. Is this normal?

Welcome to ehealthforum and thanks for writing

In absence of major symptoms like fever, loss of weight, appetite, bloody stools, etc, your symptoms could be due to irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a chronic functional disorder characterized by cramping abdominal pain or discomfort with alterations in bowel habits (bloating, constipation, and diarrhea). These symptoms usually are present for at least 12 weeks in a patient during the previous one year, and unfortunately the onset or subsidence cannot be predicted. Most symptoms of IBS can be controlled with diet, stress management, and prescribed medications.

It requires a proper examination and investigations results to give a precise diagnosis. Kindly visit a Physician for counselling and treatment.

Take care!
