Brief Answer:
Could be gastritis or indigestion

Detailed Answer:
Hi
THANKS FOR WRITING TO US.
BASED ON YOUR DESCRIPTION I WOULD LIKE TO SUUGEST TWO POSSIBILITIES:
1. Indigestion - This can happen if she had eaten oily food or hotel or bakery foods the previous day. This is temporary and will settle with soft bland foods. Avoid spicy oily stuff. Make her drink lot of water to keep her hydrated.
Let her eat in small quantities.
2. Gastritis due to water or food. I usually prescribe sucralfate syrup 5ml twice daily to decrease belching for such patients in my clinic.

If she develops vomiting, fever, loose stools severe stomach pain, then it could be infective causes for which you need to consult your pediatrician.

I have been diagnosed with an Ulcer right at the bottom of my stomach into the intestine. I am taking sucralfate 1 gram tablets, This morning I woke up and the pain was horrible. I took Mylanta which I ended up taking the whole bottle in a 4 hour period and the pain still wont subside. I have drank some chicken broth and had jello the pain still wont go away. I just consumed a whole roll of tums and the pain still wont go away. 15 min prior to the tums I tried baking soda and water mixture but no help there. Im now drinking chamomile tea and to yet no relief I honestly feel like my stomach is being ripped apart. What should I do every time I go to the hospital and complain of pain like this they assume I just want pain meds. and I dont I have seen 3 different gastroenterologists and no one seems to want to help. Im lost and in a lot of pain.
