Brief Answer:
Likely to be due to gastroenteritis

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. It seems that your mother is suffering from an episode of gastroenteritis. Irrespective of treatment such episodes usually last for 2-5 days. You would have to be patient. I would insist you to make her:
* Take plenty of ORS (oral rehydration solution) to replenish the lost fluids and salts.
* Take juicy fruits like citrus fruits. They contain plenty of potassium which should help in proper functioning of the muscles and in reduction of the cramps.
* Regular morning walk and exercise to keep the bowel movements proper.
* Take curd or yogurt on daily basis. It contains beneficial bacteria and should help.
* Stress reduction has a very important role to play. Yoga and meditation should help.
* Continue the mentioned medications and to finish the course of antibiotics.

Hopefully that should help.

Let me know if I could help further.
