Thanks for posting your query.
Your symptoms are suggestive of inflammatory process in the colon.
it can be a dysentery most likely caused by bacteria or entamoeba.
It also can be due to diverticulitis or an inflammatory bowel disease.
You should get examined by a physician and get investigated.
An ultrasound of abdomen, CBC, RFT, CRP and a stool examination would be very helpful in the investigation and in planning the treatment.
