Hello,

Diarrhea can cause cramps and dehydration. ORS has settled the diarrhea but if you have pain and hardness on the lower abdomen, I would advice you to meet your doctor at once because it could be a sign of preterm labor or at least the uterus has become irritable, so you might need complete bed rest or uterine relaxants to stop the pain and hardness. Pain near the diaphragm could be due to acidity, which could be due to not eating for long hours.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Rishma Lakhani, OB & GYN Specialist
