What causes constant stomach cramps and diarrhea?

My doctors aren t having any success and I m almost at the end of my rope. Stomach cramps, diarrhea constantly now. This also included large amounts of uric acid (red flakes small stones) crystals in my urine until I started taking Pantoprazol every day starting a month ago. Now I developed severe flu like symptoms about a week ago and haven t shaken these yet. Flu now or next level. Frequent violent cough, black stools,sneeze, aches and pain in back, legs, and waist. Fever. Horrible acid taste in my mouth. Food taste bad. I had a upper endoscopy and colonoscopy recently with 5 polyps removed. Chest Xray no results yet.

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

* The possible issue seems here to be systemic inflammatory reaction from
various reasons, the prime factor likes to be hormone imbalance with gut
flora disturbances and immune suppression.

I would like further comments with all details of reports of scopy with biopsy and lab tests if available.

Thank you.

My son just called from college and said he has had diarrhea all semester, along with what sounds like stomach cramping when he has to go. But the symptoms disappear after he goes (temporarily, anyway). He s only telling me now because he s worried because tonight, he had a lot of blood come out with the diarrhea. He also said he feels bloated a lot, like he has a gut but he doesn t. He is 19 years old, 6 , 205 lbs, and is very active as he is a college football player. No weight loss, but we have noticed that he often can t eat a full meal without a break , sometimes he ll throw up after a meal, and he belches constantly and feels like he has acid reflux. He uses a CPAP machine, just FYI. Any thoughts?

Mid-evening Saturday, I started having mild stomach cramps. The last time I felt something like this, it was food poisoning. Almost 48 hours later, the pains haven t gone away and the diarrhea hasn t happened. In fact, I m feeling like I m mildly constipated
