Suffering from stomach cramps and Diarrhoea. Is it a stomach infection?

I had what I thought was a stomach virus yesterday with stomach cramps , gurgling, and watery diarrhea . (About 13 times) Night time until the next afternoon was full of gas but diareah was gone. Now it s back with full force cramps and diarrhea is a creamy substance with whitish or light color. Kind of smells like nursing baby s poop. What is going with me? Should I head over to the E.R.?

General & Family Physician Dr. Pavan Kumar Gupta's  Response
You seem to have developed viral gastroenteritis.There is no need to take any antibiotic at the moment.
Since there is no blood in stool,no fever ,you don't need any antibiotic at the moment.
You only require oral rehydration solution so as not to develop any dehydration.
You would require to go to ER only if you are having vomiting and not able to take orally.
In that case you would require intravenous saline.
So at the moment just take plenty of oral fluids and go to ER if you develop some complication like blood in stool.
