Constipation?: If by treating diarrhea you mean you took meds to stop it you may be experiencing the opposite. Meds to stop diarr. Can cause constipation, cramping in th lower abdomen. Especially if the cause of the diarrhea had not fully resolved. Cramping will ususally resolve once th effect of the meds wears off. If not improving or getting worse see your doctor.
