stomach cramping

In the past year I have occasional bouts of stomach cramping after a meal  with occasional dirareha or bowel movement. Often drinking something hot will bring it on. I have an upcoming appoint. to see a specialist, but was wondering what I Could do in the meantime. I am careful about what I eat, small meals. verylittle decaf coffee, mostly herbal tea. I have a perscript. for belladonna but am relunctant to use. I exercise daily and do yoga 3 to 4 times a week.,I take 5mgs of elavil at nite. What can you recommend to take that is natural so I won't have anxiety about going out to dinner. I often take pepto bismol as a precautionary measure. I feel  that I am very healthy for my age, I truly work at it. I have no gall bladder by the way. Did have some heartburn issues so took Prilosec for 14 days a month ago and am doing fine in that area.
