Suggest treatment for severe chronic diarrhea

HI, I am having severe chronic diarrhea now for over 1 month (had issues for more than 3 months already), plus abdominal pain all over, most especially in low pelvic region when having a bowel movement - burning raw pain. Also pain in upper abdomen and under right side of rib cage. Have had an ultrasound and no gallstones show up. Also blood test (not sure what was looked for) came back clear. Not sure what to do next...
