Diarrhoea after a few minutes of eating food. Diagnosis?

Hello, About 2 weeks ago I got sick and was throwing up/liquid diahrrea. I threw up for 12 hours and had diahrrea for about 4 full days. Could not keep in liquids/food. I have since been able to hold in some food and most of the liquids I drink. However, most of the food I consume only stays in for 15-20 minutes. I get a very upset stomach and diahrrea. This has been going on for a week and a half. I have always had a weak stomach but never as consistent as it is now. Toast/crackers/popsicles have been the only food that stays in and doesn t upset my stomach. Soup/Salad/turkey/fish are a few of the foods that have come out right away after eating. I realize this could be a variety of issues. Would more specific information help with a diagnosis? Please let me know. FYI 26 year old male. Normally very healthy.
