Thank you for the query.

Your symptoms sound like inflammatory bowels disease (Crohns disease). As your symptoms are not improving I suggest you to visit your doctor. Blood work, liver tests, pancreas amylase and abdominal ultrasound, abdominal X-ray should be done at first. After that if no other particular reason will be found, you should get scheduled for colonoscopy.

Hope this will help.
