Thanks for posting your query.
With the available described symptoms, there could be possibility of acute bacterial gastroenteritis or exaggerated gastrocolic reflex .
Frequent urge for defecation is suggestive of diagnosis.
You should consult with internal medicine specialist/ general surgeon and should go for thorough check up.
You should also go for complete blood count, ultrasound imaging, and serum electrolytes, endoscopy with duodenal biopsy.
You should take complete antibiotic therapy, antispasmodics, probiotics, antipyretics, if needed.
You should maintain your hydration by taking potassium rich liquids.
Avoid milk and all milk related products.
You should also take mebeverine for relief of your symptoms.
Take care,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava
