diarrhea, recurrent fever after eating, bloating and pain

I stated having intestinal pain and feeling really gassy both in my intestines and stomach 3 days ago. Then I started to get really tired and achey after I ate lunch. For the first day I had trouble going, but then it turned to diarrhea. The 2nd day this happened I took my temperature and I had a fever that lasted over 12 hours. I kept taking tylenol and lying down to reduce it.

Now it's the 3rd day. I've been feeling bloated w/ lots of gas, and intestinal pain still. And again, when I ate a little bit of food for lunch (half a can of campbells soup), about 2 hours later I had a low grade fever again. I've been going frequently between every 10 minutes and every 45 minutes depending on how long it's been since I ate, but I don't get very much out each time.

I feel a little nauseated when I get gas in my stomach, but I try to burp it up. I have not vomitted yet, nor felt worse enough to do so. It seems to be mostly in the intestines.

I'm concerned because I keep getting this fever every time I eat something of substance. I do not know what this is. I've never had symptoms like this before. I've had stomach viruses before that lasted 2 days with really voilent illness and then starting to feel better, but this is steady.

Is it just a prolonged virus? Some type of bacteria? I don't recall eating anything unsafe or unsanitary. I had chicken 5 days ago, but as far as I know it was well cooked, and other people who ate it aren't sick. Could it be some type of parasite? I read parasites tend to cause gas.

I went to the doctor today for something unrelated (scheduled appointment), so I figured since I was sick anyway I'd discuss it and get an answer. I told him I thought I had food poisoning or something, described the symptoms, and he basically ignored me and said "oh it's probably a stomach virus" and sent me on my way. He's not the usual dr I see. I just know I've never had a stomach virus w/ recurrent fever.

Any help would be much appreciated.
