Hi there,How long you have these cramps?And what have you tried so far?Stomach cramps can be due to the dehydration and electrolyte abnormalities most commonly.Other intestinal problems like acute appendicitis, intestinal obstruction, pelvic inflammatory disease, should be considered with a CT scan of the abdomen.Sports fluids, Magnesium, Naproxen and hot water pack can be tried to relax the cramps.Vomiting can be addressed by an antinausea medication like zofran.This needs urgent evaluation in the local hospital. Thank you for sharing your concerns with us today. If you have any additional questions or need further clarifications, please do not hesitate to ask. I am here to answer them. I wish you good health. Regards, ***** *****
