Hi there,
welcome to HCM.
Cramps and diarrhea is seen in gastritis and also in gut infection. If intestinal infection is there, usually stool is mixed with mucus and blood. Abdominal pain and fever is also present. Please do not take any antibiotic without a prescription from the doctor. I suggest you drink lots of fluids and take Tab Buscopan for the pain. If still does not reduce please get a stool examination done. Based on the results, appropriate medications can be taken from your GP. Thanks.
