Nauseated with diarrhea. Painful tummy. Pain in pelvic area and back. Why?

Last Sat I had some kind of severely painful upper abdominal attack caused me to get really nauseated and watery diarrhea . The attack lasted about 30-45 seconds and came about every 10-15 minutes followed by diarrhea. Lasted about 6-8 hours. Next day abdominal area hurts to touch and pain in my back between my shoulder blades. The pain is right between my breasts below my rib cage. Hurts to take a deep breath with upper back pain . The pain has been off and on for a week and it is either an attack or just a constant pain. Diarrhea comes and goes and sometimes the pain shoots to my sides or pelvic area. I have no insurance but almost went to the ER several times . Any ideas? Thank you

Hello and welcome to health care magic.
From your symptoms I think you are having a bacterial food poisoning, possibly by Staphylococcus aureus, which is still persisting without proper treatment.
My advice is to go to a physician and let him have a look.
He will give proton pump inhibitors like Omeprazole and antibiotics like metronidazole. He will test your blood for raised total count and ESR and stools for presence of blood and amoebic cysts.
Hope this discussion will be helpful to you.
Wishing you good health.
