Hi,
As mentioned from the other post, Irritable bowel syndrome may present with abdominal pain or discomfort, along with diarrhea, constipation, or both. If the fever and cough persist, and the medication did not work, additional diagnostic tests may need to be done including imaging studies of the chest to rule out pulmonary conditions also. Take care and do keep us posted.
