I see.

she could have had some food poisoning or a viral infection causing this pain

has she tried any pepto bismal? or maalox or mylanta to see if these help?

all of that with no effect

you should take her to the ER

they can give her stronger prescription medications like bentyl and other bowel spasm medications which can help.
