Suggest treatment for stomach pain and loose stool

hi. I have had severe stomach pains, loose stools and gas for the past 2 days. I have been taking buscopan and that sort of helps the pain but i still feel like i need to go to the toilet and nothing! I have taken imogein or something for the loose stools but now i think i am constipated. I know that i did not overdose. What's going on? Are there symptoms of lactose intolerance? As it happen half an hour after a milk shake which i don't usually indulge in... Also remedy for rumbling stomach?

It is stomach infection (if repeated bouts after milkshake, they can think of lactose intolerance, not with one instance). Primary working tips
- Drink more liquids (avoid milk till recovery).
- Prefer soft, light diet.
- Avoid nonveg, spices, junk foods.
- Intake of PPI as pantoprazole, antacid syrup as Mylanta or others, GI antibiotic with metronidazole on the pack will recover faster.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
