Hello; one of the commonest cause of intestinal dysmotility is underlying stress & anxiety disorder For a start you can start eating probiotic foods like youghurt, curd, buttermilk, green leafy vegetables, legumes etc in addition you can practice Deep breathing which helps lessen the severity of stress. If these measures do not work in 15 days, consider visiting a Psychiatrist for help.
