Hello. I'm Dr Chip
Thanks for your question and I'm reviewing it.
I'll be back in a moment with and answer or a request for more information

There are a few possibilities for this--

A viral gastroenteritis that usually runs it's course by now

A gall bladder problem with gall stones


Or a bacterial colitis as with E coli, salmonella or C diff

You need to see your doctor about this and I would do an exam, blood work, a ct scan of your abdomen and a stool culture to sort things out

Please let me know if you need any more information
