Watery diarhea with stomach pain

It is already 3 days since I’ve got this diarrhea and this is the first time I’m having watery diarrhea which is very painful as I need to go to the bathroom more than 5 times a day. I went to doctor and took medicine. But, if I took too much medicine, it will cause problem to my stomach. Now I am still having watery diarrhea with stomach pain. Please advise.
