In brief: Likely functional

Most times these symptoms represent a functional disorder such as ibs.
However other etiologies such as ibd, small intestine bacterial overgrowth, bile salt induced diarrhea (to name a few) can result in similar symptoms and in the right scenario should be further evaluated. So see your doctor.

In brief: Irritable bowel

Sounds like irritable bowel or spastic colon.
Your doctor can prescribe medication for that like Bentyl (dicyclomine) to be taken before meals and at bedtime.
