Hi. Thanks for the query.
From your query it looks like it might be a stomach flu. Still, if your child has eaten in any restaurant or any uncooked food or anything from roadside stalls, picnics, etc, you have to consider food poisoning. This usually presents with severe stomach pain, diarrhea or vomiting.
.As your child is not able to take sufficient oral feeds due to the ache, i advise you to go to your pediatrician. and get checked for food poisoning, urinary infection or stomach flu. Besides, your child will be given medication to be relieved of the cramps in the tummy and will be significantly better. This is better than waiting and watching at home in her present condition.
Hope your child gets well soon. Take care. bye.
