Thanks for your query.
Since you have severe diarrhoea,abdominal pain and body ache it seems you have got a bacterial infection of stomach and intestine.
Commonly caused due to infection through contaminated food or water.
I would suggest you to consult a doctor and get antibiotics prescribed for treating the infection.
Your doctor may prescribe you antibiotics like metronidazole and ofloxacin if needed and you should become fine.
Till then you should :-
-Try to have more liquids orally,
-It will be advisable to use electrolytes with water to help maintain electrolyte balance,
-If you have temperature along with bodyache then you can take a tablet of Tylenol(Paracetamol) to get relief.
Early treatment will help recover faster and avoid dehydration.
Hope this answer is helpful to you.
Please accept this answer if you have no further queries.
Take care.
