Probably: It certainly is disconcerting to have abdominal pain and diarrhea consistently after eating and a visit to your physician is highly advised. The diagnostic possibilities are dependent upon timing of eating, specific foods involved, location of pain and coexisting medical conditions. Ibs in your age group is a possibility, unlikely as it might be, nonetheless, it should be ruled out.
