Have pain in abdomen. Had diarrhea. No medication till now. What could be the reason?

About a month ago, I had a small case of diarrhea. Ever since then I have had problems with pooping. I would have the urge multiple times throughout the day, but all that would come out is a mucus/water substance. I will actually poop every couple of days. This past week, It gets painful in the abdominal area to poop. I still poop out the mucus, but now I also have a sharp pain in my stomach that only goes away when I lay down. I haven't really changed my diet, and now I've geared more towards a liquid diet since thats the easiest thing to go down. What do you think?

Hi Jordan

Thanks for writing in
Your information is suggestive of infective collitis
It would be suggested you avoid junk and contaminated meals and drinks
Take a probiotic for five to seven days twice a day
If need be add a GI Antibiotic
Hope this helps
