Stomach issues...

Hello...I have stomach issues on and off for a few years now, and I have some symptoms that have been occuring just over the last few weeks.  When lying in bed at night, I notice that my upper stomach is swollen.  Also, my bathroom habits have been a little different.  I don't go as regularly as I used to.  Normally, I would have to go 2 or 3 times a day, and the stool is normal.  However, now I have to go several times a day, and it's usually just small amounts.  It even hurts a little (but I think that's just irritation).  However, every couple of days I have diarrhea that's almost explosive, and it usually results in losing a couple of pounds.  What can this be?
