Hello

Welcome to Justanswer website.Myself Dr Josh and I’m happy to help with your question today.

The symptoms you are having of severe abdominal pain every 5 minutes since last 2 days along with diarrhea on first day can be due to a condition called gastroenteritis what you call as stomach flu. Gastroenteritis is the irritation and inflammation of the digestive tract.Its most common causes are:Food poisoning, viral infections, food allergies, improper diet, and intestinal parasites or bacterial infections.

Most commonly this is due to viral infection & symptoms may last from 3-5 days.

Take tab.Acetaminophen for relief from this pain in abdomen & cramps.It is available as OTC(over the counter) without prescription & will help you greatly in pain relief.

If still after this,the pain persists,then you need to see your doctor.

Usually & most likely,the symptoms gets relieved with this.
