Hi welcome to Health care magic forum.
You had pain in the center of the stomach, and loose motions, the cause of the pain is infection of the intestines, called gastroenteritis.
I advise you to consult a physician for diagnosis and treatment. You may need to have infusion of I.V.fluids, for recovery from the dehydration due to motions. The pain may also be due to dehydration of the intestines as well.
Besides you may need to have anti spasmodics as well for relief of pain.
Wishing for a quick and complete recovery.
Best regards.

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

This is gastro-enteritis - infection - viral or bacterial...
The most important treatment is fluids - large enough to pass more than normal quantity of urine. ORS (Oral Rehydration solution) is available over the counter...
Avoid milk / try plain tea
Anti-secretory agents like Racecadotril can help
Seeing a doctor and getting the stool examined is ideal

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
