Thanks for posting your query.
Your history suggests you may have Irritable bowel syndrome or viral or bacterial infection, but all these conditions have to be confirmed. Kindly get yourself examined by a like,

1.) Bloodwork.
2.) Urinalysis.
3.) Stool Test.

Once the cause is confirmed, you will be treated accordingly - Antibiotics, antispasmodics, stool softeners. If this treatment doesn't help, you will have to seek opinion from a Gastroenterologist for further evaluation.
Till then doing a hot fomentation will help in relieving the pain.
Follow these lifestyle modifications:

1.) Drink plenty of fluids.
2.) Avoid fatty, high calorie foods and dairy products.
3.) Stick to your treatment plan and go for regular follow up.

Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
