Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you. I am a board certified consultant with over 30 years of experience.

The main line of treatment include
Drink plenty of water and Oral rehydration solution(Gatorade) Rehydralyte. It would be better to use the later as gatorade contains caffeine which can worsen diarrhea.
Take metamucil
Eat a bland easy to digest food.
Take Peptobismol to relieve nausea .
Take plenty of rest.
Since the symptoms are persistent for 10 hours now you may require IV fluids and Injectable anti emetic medication and antispasmodic medicine i do think you should consult your nearby doctor or emergency room for further management.

I hope this helps.

Would the extreme stomach pain be caused by the diarrhea?
Expert:  Dr.Anil replied 24 days ago.

Yes.

It is severe spasmodic pain.

Usually anti spasmodic injection like buscopan/buscogast are prescribed and helps to control the pain.
