Interesting questions! Let's take a closer look. I also attached an extra resources of other digestive problems.

RESPONSE:

1. What are at least two common digestive problems?

Several common digestive problems are indigestion and nausea, heartburn, constipation, diarrhea, gas and bloating and food reactions.
