Doctor :   Hi. Continuous pain in the upper abdomen with tightness and loose stools can be due to gastroenteritis. I would adv ise you the following: Get the stool and blood checked. Ultrasonography of the abdomen. Clinical evaluation and physical examination will help to get a proper diagnosis and hence a plan of the treatment. A course of antibiotic, metronidazole, probiotics, activated charcoal tablets will help you to recover fast. Hope this helps you.
