Hi - best probiotic I know is VSL #3, expensive and hard to find, probably have to order online. Another good one is Digestive Advantage IBS, easy to find at grocery/drug stores and affordable.

Try strong hot peppermint tummy tea for the nausea and cramps - brew it black, leave the teabag in the whole time you drink it, so it's as strong as possible. That will help very, very quickly. More info: https://www.heatherstummycare.com/p/teas_pmint-can-bags/peppermint-tummy-teabags-can/

When things have calmed down enough to eat a little bit get some plain soluble fiber in your gut with more strong peppermint tea - plain white rice is perfect, or some tummy fiber, etc.

If you are in a medical marijuana state that can also be an option for help with the pain and cramps - there are delivery methods that can stop pain really fast. You may have to play with the THC vs CBD varieties to see what helps you the most, the fastest, and also try vape vs sublingual vs some type of edible (hard candy to suck on), etc. There are an increasing number of options in this whole area of treatment.
