Hi,
Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.R.K and I am pleased to assist you.

You are having symptoms of colitis (inflamed colon). The most common cause is infection. A stool test may be done to confirm it.

You can take antispasmodic medications like bentyl for relief. If the stool test shows infection, then you have to get treated for infection also for complete relief.

I hope that answers your question.
Regards,
Dr.R.K
