How to treat diarrhea and vomit?

Hi, I've been experiencing intermittent stomach paIn, bloating, diarrhea and Vomitting after meals.
I'm having stomach pain and bloating right now. My last attack was In nov 2011. Both these incidences were after taking meal at my mums place. I suspect that something was wrong with my mums food bcoz my wife also had bloating and pain aftereating at my mOms. But my conditions is worse than my wife's. I smoke and drink. My daily diet consists mainly of rice and chicken.

Hi.
Thanks for your query.
Noted the history and understood the concerns.
Intermittent stomach pains, bloating, diarrhea and vomiting indicate that you and your wife have gastroenteritis or food poisoning and surely there may be some problem at your Mothers water or food source.
Well, ask your Mother whether anyone there too suffer from similar symptoms?
I would advise you the following in such a situation:
Get stool and blood tests done.
Get a course of an antibiotic, metronidazole and probiotic.
Take coiled and cooled water, homemade fresh foods.
Take plenty of oral fluids and electrolyte solution to have proper hydration and electrolyte balance.
If the symptoms increase or do not come under control you may need an admission to the hospital for intravenous fluids and antibiotics.
I find this answer helpful
