Two weeks ago I had a bout of diarrhea

Patient

Q: Two weeks ago I had a bout of diarrhea. Immediately after I had severe stomach cramps and had to go to hospital. The pain subsided after a couple of hours then would occur on and off for the next 5 days, mostly at night, the cramps would wake me up. I had an ultrasound and blood test, everything looked fine. Now two weeks after I am still experiencing some dull pain in my lower right abdomen that comes and goes throughout the day. I'm concerned as two days prior to the stomach pain, I had just began taking accutane 10mgs. I had only taken 2 pills. I'm not sure if this is related or a coincidence, or perhaps that one bout of diarrhea triggered something in my stomach that is taking a while to heal??
