Brief Answer:
You seem to have a stomach bug.

Detailed Answer:
Hi welcome to Health care magic, You seem to have a stomach bug.
Please take a tablet of immodium/loperamide, and Ondensetron soluble mouth dissolving. Also take anything for acidity you have. From your symptoms I feel you will need antibiotic. If nausea subsides, take black tea with lemon, salt and sugar and repeat every hour till you see your doctor.
Contact your PCP or ER.
Please revert back to me.
