Food related: The symptoms sound suspicious for ingesting either a toxin or a food you are sensitive to. You could Tylenol (acetaminophen) for pain and drink electrolyte fluids to help repair your bowel. If your pain is worse or if you behind in your fluids, go to the ER for treatment. All the best. Try to narrow down the food or see if your friends ate the same food.
