Welcome and thank you for your question. I am Dr.Mazumdar and I hope I'm able to help you with your medical problem today.
It is likely that you have picked up an infection by an amoeba known as E. Histolytica. This amoeba enters the body with food or water and cause abdominal pain diarrhea with mucus.
Please consult your doctor for a stool test. You will need to take antibiotics like Metronidazole or Tinidazole.
I hope this helps.
