Hard to be sure...: A simple tummy ache with symptoms like nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea, whether at home or traveling, may be from a virus infection, bacteria infection, or contaminated food. A normal person, not on medications, usually recovers easily. Taking a pedialyte popsicle hourly, plus drinking/eating little else for a day, may settle things down. The doctor can check to see if there is anything serious.

Or there could be fluid within the peritoneal cavity causing irritation. Or even gastroenteritis (any nausea, vomiting, diarrhea?).
