What is a lazy bowl and what are the symptoms?

I've been having abdominal pain for over two months now, with the pain coming and going.  The pain used to come about 4-5 hours after eating but it now seems to happen immediately after eating.  Along with this pain, I am nauseous and am really burping a lot (I never burped before).  I also have frequent diarrhea.  When the pain is happening, my adbomen feels hard and swollen a bit.  Also pressure hurts the abdomen.  It started off as happening maybe three times a week, usually at night, but now it's every day, morning, afternoon and night.  Yesterday I had a migraine and woke up this morning with a headache (unsure if it's related).  Also, the last couple of days I have been really dizzy, like just moving my head and closing my eyes makes me really dizzy.  I called Telehealth and the nurse there thought it may be either a twisted bowel or a lazy bowel.  I was able to find information about a twisted bowel but not for the lazy bowel.  I'm wondering what the symptoms are and if it pertains to me.  I want to also mention that the first doctor I seen about this prescribed me acid reflux medication that did not work.  I have also since done blood tests to see if I had the h. pylori bacteria (which I do not) and am scheduled for an ultrasound for my gallbladder.
