From your history, it apears that your suffering from Irritable bowel syndrome.
you may need some investications such as sigmoidoscopy/colonoscopy to rule out conditions such as malignancy and polyps. You may also need stool culture to rule out other diseases. As treatment you have to avoid stress. you can take tablet loperamide 2-4 mg daily for control of frequent stools. In addition, you can also take tablet hyoscyamine and amitriptyline
