Brief Answer:
Food poisoning likely

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for asking,

You seem to be having acute food poisoning (stomach bug)
Take light food. If possible drink only ORS for 1 day.
Take bananas orange and apple.
No nonvegetarian food for next 3 days.

Take any over the counter antiemetic (Metoclopramide, Ondansetron etc.) with an antibiotic like Rifaximin (may need a prescription for these) for 3 days.

You should be fine in 2 to 3 days, feel free to ask further.

Thanks!
