I have had cramps around my waist area and suspect there is

This answer was rated:

I have had cramps around my waist area and suspect there is something going on with my colon or lower stomach. Besides the cramps, I feel like I always have to make a bowel movement but dont go.. I have had diarhea for at least 2 weeks, sometimes 4 times in a hr..Went to my Dr and said my blood pressure is lower then normal and thinks I was dehydrated.. I have been drinking plenty of fluids but still have the cramps and watery diareaha.. More like squirts.. I was hospitalized once for pancreatitus, gastritus and colitus... I suspect it may be colitus again but will have to have a colonoscopy I assume.I have type 2 diabetes and this morning it was 183 and 3 hrs later it went to 71 and I didnt exercise or take my diabetes pill.. Also feeling fatigue, tired and like I am in a fog
