Thanks for your question.
What symptoms are you presently having? Do you have fever, diarrhea, nausea, or vomiting? Where exactly in the abdomen do you have pain?

Dear customer,
Thanks for your reply.
You are suffering from viral gastroenteritis or from food poisoning. Both these conditions are mild and resolve without treatment. But some people need to go to the hospital due to complications such as dehydration. So now your main concern is to avoid dehydration.
Hence you need to make sure that you replace the lost fluids in diarrhea. Drink plenty of liquid by taking small, frequent sips. Allow your stomach to settle and avoid eating solid foods for a few hours. Gradually begin to eat bland, easy-to-digest foods. You also need to rest. If fever is present you can take tylenol. You can also take prilosec if you are feeling acidity and burning type of pain in the abdomen. It won't be harmful. However you need to concentrate more on avoiding dehydration. The tylenol will also be helpful for the abdominal pain. Make sure that you are urinating normally and that your urine is not dark, which is a sign of dehydration. If you continue to get the pain after 1 week, or if there are symptoms such as high grade fever, increased pain, bloody stools, persistent nausea and vomiting, skin that appears yellow, severe tenderness when you touch your abdomen, or swelling of the abdomen please consult your doctor or go to the ER.
Take care.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
