Can be bacterial or parasitic cause.

Detailed Answer:
Hi

Thank you for asking HCM

I have gone through your query. Your problem can be from a bacterial or parasitic cause from the food or fluids you had.
Applying hot water bags on abdomen will be helpful to relieve pain. You can take black tea with lemon , ginger ,salt and sugar. Take fluids according to lose. Tender coconut water or ORS can be taken also. Taking spasmolytics like Cyclopam (dicyclomine + paracetamol) also helps. Usually it will be self limiting within 1 or two days.
If there is no improvement then stool routine examination should be done and antibiotics will be needed in case of positive infection.

Let me know if anything not clear.
I am happy to help you.
Thanks.
