Have diarrhea, stomach cramps, headache, weakness, bloated. What can be done?

Hello, late Sunday evening, after eating a large buffet style meal, I woke up several times throughout the night with moderate stomach aches/cramps. I am on my period so at first I attributed the pain to that. I then woke up a couple hours later, and vomited all that I had eaten. I returned to bed. Several hours later I had a severe headache, and then woke with dhiarrea. All of Monday I rested and slept. In the early evening I began having chills and feeling weak. I slept much better through the night and felt pretty good this morning. Now, I a feeling somewhat weak and bloated, with small burps occasionally. All I have eaten/drank since this period has been soup, saltine crackers, gatorade and water. Had one more bowl movement this morning, but no more vomiting, just the bloating, and acute somewhat frequent "jabbing" in my stomach. I think this may be food poisoning...what else can/should I do?

Thanks for posting your query.
With the available described symptoms, there could be possibility of acute viral gastroenteritis.
Myalgia is an integral prodromal symptom of viral infection.
You should consult with internal medicine specialist/ pediatrician and should go for thorough check up.
You should also go for complete blood count, ultrasound imaging, and serum electrolytes.
Viral infection has also some effect on liver and that's why loss of appetite and fatigue is very common with viral infections.
You should take complete antibiotic therapy, antispasmodics, probiotics, antipyretics.
You should maintain your hydration by taking potassium rich liquids.
Avoid milk and all milk related products.
Take care,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava
