Hi, Welcome to Health care magic forum.
As you describe, it appears to be the celiac disease, due to intolerance to the gluten,in wheat,barley,oats etc.
It also may be due to the lactose intolerance due to the presence of milk and milk products.
I advise you to consult a gastroenterologist for diagnosis and treatment. You may need to have colonoscopy, and biopsy for diagnosis.
Wishing for a quick and complete recovery. Thank you.
