Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.R.K and I am pleased to assist you.

Abdominal pain and loose stools for last 3-4 days could be due to stomach bug. You could have acquired the infection through food or water.
A stool test may be done to confirm infection.
A course of antibiotics may be required to treat it. Probiotic supplements may hasten recovery. You can also take yogurt.
BRAT diet - Banana, Rice, Apple sauce and Toast may be taken.

For relief from pain you can take antispasmodics like cyclopam twice a day.

I hope that answers your question.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
