As you pass sticky stool and having stomach cramps you might be having GI infection, either amebic or bacterial.
Consult your doctor and if he thinks it proper for going one course of Ofloxacilin. ornidazole combination medicine.
This will clear your problem.
Take plenty of water and more fiber containing diet.
Ok and take care.
