Hello and thank you for your post on e health forum.

The description of the symptoms suggest a infection in the intestines (Enteritis).

You might benefit by consult a doctor and getting a stool test and blood tests to rule out the cause of the infection.

In the mean time , pepto bismol and probiotic supplements might help to relieve the symptoms.

I hope this helps.
