For 2 weeks I've been experiencing problems with stomach pain and a general "sick" feeling on and off. It all started 2 weeks ago after I had dinner and went out to get a soft drink from Taco Bell. In the middle of the night, I awoke with sudden cramps and diarrhea. This continued for 24 hours and went away. I thought it was something I either ate or drank or just a bout of 24 hour stomach flu.
Well, it keeps coming back, in milder form. Now it happens when I sit down to eat or after eating--my stomach churns and feels upset. During the day I feel a STRONG urge to go #2 and while it's not diarrhea, it's a bit, um, explosive.
I even feel the urge to evacuate my bowels after they're empty, and loud gurgling noises have been coming from my lower intestine. I have bouts of gas that turn into loose stool.
I don't know why I'm experiencing a sudden change like this. Could I still be sick?
