Bloating, diarrhea: By the way you describe the symptoms it is either a food allergy (i.e. Gluten or lactose) with "hot flashes" just being vasodilatation form histamine release, or viral/bacterial enteritis (i.e. Stomach flu or food poisoning). If it is a food allergy it will occur regularly, a enteritis typically passes without much treatment.

Need more info....: To even narrow down diagnoses, we'd need a lot more information. How long has it been going on? Fever? Define "diarrhea"--watery? Loose? How many times per day? Bloody? Color? Describe the pain. On right side or left side? Middle? Constant? Every now and then? Sharp? With bowel movements? Stabbing? Aching? Hurts to push with hand? Any problems urinating? With a bit more info, we can help!
