    Help me!

    Recently I traveled to Costa Rica and near the end of my trip I started experiencing really bad, excruciating stomach pain/cramps. I was constipated for a couple of days and then started to have bad diarrhea. The stomach pain is unlike pretty much anything I’ve ever felt. I’ve also been super bloated and drowsy.
