Severe abdominal pain with diarrhea. Had appendicitis in the past. Any suggestions?

I have had a bad stomach since few hours including bouts of diarrhea . However since two hours I get occasional bouts of severe pain on the upper abdomen/ lower heart region? I had got an emergency appendicitis surgery six months back, but this pain is different from what I was experiencing earlier during appendicitis? Should I be concerned?

Thanks for posting your query.
You are most likely suffering from acute viral gastroenteritis.
Presence of pain along with diarrhea indicates the diagnosis.
You should consult with physician and should go for complete blood count, stool examination & ultrasound imaging.
If you are suffering fromdehydration then you should get admission in hospital for 1-2 days.
You should try to maintain your hydration by taking oral rehydration solution.
You should also take antibiotics, anti-spasmodics and probiotics.
You should also avoid milk and all milk relted products.
Take care,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava
