Brief Answer:
You are suffering from enteritis.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for query.

Gastroenteritis is irritation and inflammation of the stomach and bowel that is usually caused by a virus such as norovirus, or bacteria.

Gastroenteritis usually causes mild symptoms in most people and clears up after a few days without any specific treatment.Fever is suggestive of ongoing infection in body.Abdominal pain,bloating,Nausea etc are all symptoms of Gastroenteritis.During Gastroenteritis food passes through stomach very fast due to increased peristalysis.Due to this bile is not broken properly into gut giving green color to stools(Bile is green).
Take a 3 days couse of Norfloxacin 400 mg twice daily with Metronidazole 400 mg thrice daily.
For pain take Antispasmodic like Dicyclomine 10 mg thrice daily.Will relieve spasm hence would reduce pain.
Take plenty of electrolytes.
Drink at least 8 glasses of water.
Take light home made food.

Things would settle down in a day or two with proper medical therapy.
