You definately should follow this up with a physician as already suggested, but until then there are a few things you can do. Keep a journal of what you have eaten for the entire day, complete with when you have bloating, gas, and diarrhea. For starters, this will aid the doctor in helping to diagnose your problem, but it also aids you in being able to pinpoint if this from a food or drink.
You could also start to re-structure your diet. Get off all processed foods, greasy foods, and those known to cause stomach upset (such as extra spicy foods). Start eating more green leafy veggies, less red meats, and limit your sweets. Sodas can create horrible diarrhea because of the high sugar content. You may very well have IBS or a colon issue and all of these have specialized diets that one must follow in order to avoid flare ups. My suggestion would going to the Mayo Clinic website and looking at your symptoms compared to those in the are of the intestines, as well as look up hearthburn/reflux.
If you can afford it, Prilosec is now OTO. It is taken once a day and not only aids in reflux and heartbur, but it also has qualities that help the esophogus to repair itself.
Here are links that help with utilities in the state of Michigan. Contact one of them. I don't think there is a "hot weather" rule, but there is a "cold weather" rule-they cannot shut off your power during cold months.
An old home remedy is to Boil some cabbage up to eat, drain the juice into a container and then you can drink this either cold or heated in the microwave. Depending how you fix your cabbage is how it's going to taste.
A cup or two of this will get things moving. To keep from building it up , if you can stand it, take a table spoon of apple cider vinegar. You can either take it straight or mix it in an 8oz glass.
But your best bet is to follow the advice of starshine and Anonymous40784.

Hi This is why I gave you the link to see a free doctor at a free medical clinic
I went to a free clinic when I moved to the beach and had no doctor. I never had to go through a lot and if I didn't have the money I didn't have to pay. And when I had the some money I gave what I could after all it was a free clinic and donations were accepted to keep it running. I think the most I paid was 5 bucks a visit. To me this was great until I found a job and doctor. They took care of me when I had a cold, sore throat and did other check ups that were minor. I never had to fill out tons of paper work just the basic. No big deal.
This is my reason for concern. I have had gas from stress but a friend of mine had gas pain bloating and he went in for a colon check. Well, they missed it and four months later he went back bloated, constipated and not feeling good. Unfortunately , he was in stage 4 liver cancer then and had a colon tumor they missed. He died 2 and half years later.
So if you are having problems by all means get it checked out now as the sooner the better.
The ball is in your court - it is up to you - all I can do is offer the information now you have to decide what you are going to do about it.
And I hope you decide to get it check out to be on the safe side.
Good luck and take care.
I would see a doctor to rule out many things to be on the safe side ok?? Here is a list of free medical clinics and dental if you need that too but get the bloating checked out -
See this here for help I hope
If you have a health dept in your town you could go to them.
Call around or contact social services & ask if they have a resource list. Some places have free clinics where medical professional volunteer their services.
Chamomile tea will help relax your stomach & may help with some of the pain. Pau D'arco tea will help with infections in the body. Activated charcoal will help with some of the bloating. All three of these can be found at health food store.
Hope you feel better.
For around the past few days, off & on, I have been experiencing severse abdominal pain, as well as what I think is abdominal bloating in the stomach & intestinal areas when I don't have the pain. Since this started, off & on, I've had diarrhea, as well as vomiting every so often. I've tried using Mylanta, as well as antacids, but I still experience the bloating & off & on pain. Is there any help anyone can give me? For the time being, I can't afford to go see a doctor, & would wouldn't be able to afford to pay hospital bills. Any help that I can get would be appreciated.
Changing Maine offers a directory of organizations who offer services to disabled folks. Hopefully someone on their list can provide you with the names and numbers of such agencies such as your local Community Action Program (they generally offer free school supplies to children and food pantry services), as well as the other needs you need met.
Call your children's school though and get them on Free and Reduced Lunch, and tell them you cannot buy school supplies. The PTA generally has scholarships for such needs, and the school psychologist and/or social worker should be able to put you into contact with local agencies that can help you.
