You are very probably suffering from hyper-acidity of the stomach, due to a number of things, possibly gall bladder disease, ulcer, chronic appendicitis, or chronic inflammation of the colon. Then, you may have hemorrhoids, or piles, which will very frequently cause a spasm of the intestines. If so, this condition should be removed at the earliest convenience. If extremely anxious about the diagnosis, you had best consult a stomach specialist as to X-Ray and complete stomach analysis.
