can be enteritis.

Detailed Answer:

Hello,
Thanks choosing HealthcareMagic for your query.
Have gone through your details and i appreciate your concerns.

Epigastric pain is usually caused due to indigestion or digestive tract infection.
Gastroenteritis with gastritis is often the most common cause of this problem.
Gastroenteritis means inflammation of gut as a result of infection.This inflammation causes spasms and pain in abdomen.Fever nausea vomiting loose stools constipation etc can be presenting symptoms.However its not necesary that all symptoms are there in every patient.
Presence of fever is suggestive of fact that there is some ongoing infection in body.
Some tests should be done initially to rule out the site of infection.
Test suggested are-
Stool routine and microscopy.
Ultrasound abdomen.
TLC and DLC to rule out blood infection.

Take paracetamol for fever.
Take Prilosec (omeprazole) once daily before breakfast.
Take probiotic VSL#3 once daily..
* Take curd or yogurt It contains beneficial bacteria and should help

Antibiotics would be started after tests.

Hopefully that should help.

Let me know if I could help further.
