urine is fine... no my daughter had a similar experience a few days ago without the diahhrea and vomiting... just very bad stomach cramps that come and go

 

Thank you for the information,

The symptoms can be due to viral infection which usually resolve by itself with supportive therapy.

Viral infection usually gets better in 3-5 days.

But sometimes, bacterial super infection can occur during post viral period.

In that case, start of antibiotic will reduce the symptoms.

Nausea, diarrhea and abdominal cramps can be related to stomach causes like indigestion or a viral infection.

You can take pepto bismol which can help in abdominal cramps,diarrhea and nausea.

Dramamine can help in nausea.

Keep adequate hydration by plenty of fluid & electrolyte solutions like gatorade if you can tolerate.

If the vomiting and cramps are so intense, and if it is difficult to maintain her hydration, you may need intravenous fluid.

If the symptoms persist, then it is advisable to check with ER.

Please feel free for any follow up query.

Best wishes.

it is ok that the symptoms seem to last about 2 hours and then go away for a similar time and then back again
Spasm can come at intervals.

The bouts of intestinal contraction can come at any time.

It can be incidental that it is coming every 2 hours.
