It does appear that your family is having a case of gastroentiritis. This causes colicky pain in the tummy and especially in the lower tummy. Most gastroenteritis are caused by viruses and therefore will limit themselves. This means you will get better with out antibiotics. What you need to do though is drink a lot of fluids, add some salt and sugar because the biggest risk for elders is to lose salt.
