Brief Answer: Food poisoning. Detailed Answer: Hello. Thank you for the query. His symptkms indicate food poisoning. Even if the rest of You do not have such symptoms, he may have weaker immune system. Nausea and diarrhea are very characteristic for food poisoning. Sometims such symptoms can appear due to gallstones, however upper abdominal pain radiating to the back. I suggest him to avoid any foods for 12 hours and get well hydrated (warm tea, gatorade). He should start probiotic supplementation. If the symptoms wont go away in a day, he should visit a doctor. Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions. Regards.
