Brief Answer:
Considerations.

Detailed Answer:
thanks for the query,

it's possible you may have an overgrowth of bad bacteria in your colon. This can be caused by something called C Diff.

I recommend you have your stool tested for this pathogen and if it is positive they can start you on a treatment which will help your symptoms resolve very quickly.

Sincerely,

Dr Galamaga
