Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you for asking.
You are reporting to have had stomach pain, diarrhea and blood on stools.
I need to know if you have fever? The blood was mixed with stools or was a red and fresh stool blood.
Otherwise Your symptoms may be related with :
1. acute gastrointestinal infection
2. acute diverticulitis.
To my opinion you need to start antibiotic use like ciprofloxacin and metronidazole.
Meantime I suggest to take plenty of water ,probiotics.
If you continue to have blood in your stool than you need to be evaluated by a physician and you should go to ER.
Hope it was helpful to you.
