How can pain in stomach due to diarrhea be treated?

Hello, for the last couple of weeks I have been having digestive problems that are wanting me to find out more about. I have been having a feeling of pins and needles in my stomach during mid day and would get sudden urges to go to the bathroom. I also have feelings of lots of gas that feels like punching on my sides and upper stomach but cannot always let out gas because my stool has been loose and watery. Mostly it seems like diarrhea with pain until it is let out but does not always clear in one sitting and I might find myself in the bathroom shortly after my first visit. If I only let out some stool I often find gas is easier to pass but still feel a punching feeling until it is gone. This has effected my eating at times and have found myself only eating about a half a meal most lunches. I drink tea during the day and do drink vodka at night. Drinks at night seem to ease the pain in my stomach and I don t know why. Please advise the best choice of action. Thanks

U might be having some gastrointestinal absorbtion defect or disintegration in the normal cell lining if ur gastrointestinal tract. U said of having fatty stools -steatorrhea. Try avoiding meat n oily food. Get consult with a gastroenterologist. He might examine u and suggest a USG of abdomen or a barium swallow Xray scan. Some metabolic abnormalities can also lead to excess gas formation and fatty stool. Avoid tea and coffee. Have rabeprazol n domperidone combination once a day for 3days. Have fiber rich food. Regular spacing of meal is essential.
