Brief Answer:
It could be infection of the gut

Detailed Answer:
Hi
The pain in the abdomen can be due to many reasons.The site of the pain will give clue to the diagnosis.
If it is in the lower abdomen on right side,it could be appendicitis.
If you are having pain in the entire abdomen,then it could be due to infection.It can be due to contaminated food or liquids.
I prescribe antibiotics like Ofloxacin,Metronidazole;antispasmodic and Rabeprazole tablets to my patients with similar complaints.
But i request you to get an ultrasound abdomen and rule out any disease inside.
If you have any queries,i will clarify further
