Brief Answer:
Probably a gastrointestinal infection,follow the advice below.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear and welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Your symptoms seem to be related to a gastrointestinal infection.

I would recommend using over the counter option to treat the symptoms such as Imodium three times a day.

I also recommend using daily probiotics.

I suggest drinking a lot of liquids and using a plain diet, which contains rice, yogurt, and bananas.

You should feel better in a few days.

If the symptoms continue prescribed medications may be needed. In this case you should consult your doctor for further evaluation and treatment.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
