After eating sometimes I get intense stomach pains, gas and diarrhea. There is usually no common thread among ingredients of the meal. What is this?

In brief: Can't tell here C MD

Don't know any details about you.
Depends on location of pain, type of pain, past medical and/or surgical history, sex, nature of diarrhea, frequency, other symptoms. Could be inflammatory bowel, parasites, celiac sprue, adhesions, partial bowel obstruction, other. You need to see a doc to figure it out. Bring a diet diary, with symptoms-it may help.
