Every year, around this time, I get chronic pains in my lower abdomen, just below the belly button. This pain is accompanied by diarrhea and the pain is mild to moderate--depends on how my day is going or how it has gone. Please, help me figure out what could be causing this pain, and please, help me figure out any at-home-remedies that may stop the pain or ease it's passing.

What makes your question difficult to answer is the time of year factor. I don't know of anything in and of itself that would give you abdominal pain that is accompanied by or caused by the time of year. Are you changing your diet or activity level? Does the pain and diarrhea come at other times of the year also but not as bad? There has to be something else that is triggering this, I think. If you are having some strange reaction to the time of year, try getting the lamps that are recommended for people that become depressed due to the shortening of days. You need light that mimics natural sunlight, not just more lamps. You can find them if you do a search on seasonal affective disorder light or lamp. If that doesn't work, try talking to your doctor.
