I have gone through your query and can understand your concerns..

As per your complain the symptoms of loose motions or diarrhea along with stomach cramps seems to be due to Gastroenteritis or stomach infection, food poisoning, parasitic infestation,food intolerance etc..

As you have not yet seen an expert taking antibiotics is not recommended as it should be taken only if there is infection otherwise it can further cause harmful effects rather than being helpful in resolution of symptoms..

As of now you should start taking anti diarrhea medication like Loperaminde, take fluid replacement therapy that is drink plenty of oral rehydration salts by dissolving in water and take more of banana, yoghurt, rice and cereals..
Take Tylenol for pain..

In case of no resolution in next 3 to 4 days consult a Gastroenterologist and get evaluated and a thorough clinical evaluation and investigations like blood tests and stool culture can help in diagnosis and treatment can be done accordingly..
You can be advised antibiotics, Albendazole etc depending upon the cause diagnosed..
If it is due to food allergies the cause will be ruled out and eliminated from your diet..

Hope this information helps..

Thanks and regards.
