Thanks for your query.

After reading your symptoms i feel that you may be suffering from chronic giardiasis / parasitic infection for which you need certain investigations done such as stool examination and USG abdomen for a definitive diagnosis.

Meanwhile you can take over the counter medication for pain.

I would recommend you to consult either your physician for the same. These are easily treatable.
Hope this answers your query.
