I think your developed acute gastroenteritis or irritable bowel syndrome. Any food that irritates bowel may cause vigorous movements to cause pain in the abdomen. It may be due to pleurisy or cholecystitis pain may present on the chest. It may be due to dyspepsia.

Avoid spicy food and alcohol. Avoid smoking. Use syrup Aristozyme three teaspoons twice a day for five days. If symptoms not improved, please consult your doctor he will examine and treat you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
