Brief Answer:
Supportive care

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for asking

I read your question and i understand your concern. pain all of a sudden in the middle of the night with vomiting and abdominal cramps is likely due to some gastric discomfort like stomach flu, gastritis, food poisoning etc. nothing to worry about,take some pepto, zantan you already took, if it does not help try proton pump inhibitors like nexium, prilosec etc. Modify diet and lifestyle, eat small frequent meals, avoid pain killers meds, drink more fluids and take mor efiber, avoid dairy, spicy, fatty, processed, canned foods. Avoid coffee, soda, alcohol, beverages etc.

I hope it helps. take good care of yourself and dont forget to close the discussion please.
