What causes stomach pain and diarrhea after having food?

I have had very bad stomach pains since I was a kid with no explanation as to why but recently its gotten worse. One sip of anything alcoholic and it s like I have a virus with chills fever vomiting and diarrhoea. I m now experiencing slight headaches with a faint feeling when I walk , kinda like I m under water. This occurs no matter what I eat or drink. I have shoulder and neck pain also paired with the hurting stomach and diarrhoea. I really need answers I miss about 1 day a week from work because of this.

Gastroenterologist 's  Response
Hello! Thanks for putting your query in HCM. I am a Gastroenterologist.

It appears to be due to GI infection. For which I will suggest you to take plenty of fluid and electral powder to prevent fluid and electrolyte insufficiency.

Also take a course of probiotics along with mild antispasmodic like drotavarine.

Meanwhile get your blood and stool examine (Complete haemogram and stool routine microscopy) to see for any infection and if it is there the a course of antibiotic like ofloxacin will also be required.

I hope I have answered your query and this will help you . Wish you a good health
