You could see a dr. about getting some antispasmodics. They can help calm your intestines down so you don't cramp up or get so much diarrhea. I know after my gall bladder attacks my abdominal muscles were always sore and tired from having clenched up so much while I was having an attack. Your muscles are probably sore too from tightening up when your intestines are running off. The antispasmodics should help that. If it's really bad, and/or the antispasmodics don't work, you might ask for a muscle relaxant, but you have to stay home in order to take one; you can't drive or work when you're on one because it spaces you out.
