Brief Answer:
Try anti-spasmodic.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your query about your wife.
Noted the history and understood the concerns.
If the pain is still severe it is necessary to take her to the hospital/ER as this will help to get a proper diagnosis and proper management.
But if she is not willing and if there are no other associated symptoms of bloating, nausea, vomiting or constipation/loose stools try giving her an anti-spasmodic like Dicyclomin or which ever is available at home or nearby Pharmacy and see the results within half an hour.
If the symptoms persist, needs few investigations and proper management.
I hope this answers your query, please feel free to ask for further relevant queries if you feel that there is a gap of communication.
