Hello! Thanks for putting your query in XXXXXXX I am a Gastroenterologist (DM).

What all you have to do is:
1. Take antispasmodic agent like mebeverine along with chlordiazepoxide like
2. take antisecretory agent like loperamide it will help in reducing stool frequency

Brief Answer:
Continue with above medications

Detailed Answer:
Hello! Sorry for delay. I really appreciate your concern but don't get panic.For bugs just get stool examination or simply take one tablet of albendazole empirically. This pain can occur in IBS also. I don't think any other pathology so continue with these medications. Also see whether milk or milk products worsen stool frequency, if yes then avoid them. also avoid artificial sweetner. Take a course of pre and probiotic also
