This pain is disturbing as you describe it and seems as if it deserves further attention. Good luck and feel better. ...Read more

My stomach has become very delicate. I often get gastroenteritis problems. I am not able to eat spicy food or street food.How can I build on immunity?

U may b able 2 build up a tolerance by slowly eating a small amount once in a while & c how u feel. It is possible u just can't handle it & just avoid them.
