Hey lybrate-user, These Symptoms are generally because of Irritable bowel syndrome. It is a functional disease and you need not worry about this. Add more fibres in your diet and try to stop having tea. Some medications on a regular basis can relieve these symptoms and to rule out any underlying disease you should get an USG whole abdomen.
