I think you are having symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome.
main manifestation of IBS are Manifestations of IBS are as follows:
•Altered bowel habits
•Abdominal pain
•Abdominal distention

you should go for Screening studies to rule out disorders other than IBS Like:
complete blood count with differential to screen for anemia, inflammation, and infection
•A comprehensive metabolic panel to evaluate for metabolic disorders and to rule out dehydration/electrolyte abnormalities
•Stool examinations for ova and parasites, enteric pathogens, leukocytes, Clostridium difficile toxin.

Treatment includes
1. Dietary Modifications
2. Pschcological Therapy
3. Medicines like Dicyclomine,diphenoxylate,lubowell(Lubiprostone),Mebeverine depending on symptoms

I hope this will help

Best wishes
