Suggest remedy for vomiting & diarrhoea

Hello I am a 51 year old female. After a family party at the weekend 9 members have gone down with a vomiting and diarrhoea bug. I have had quite severe symptoms since Wednesday. Severe vomiting but mild diarrhoea. The symptoms seem to have settled now although I feel very weak and a bit nauseaous. What I am concerned about is yesterday my pulse rate was 120 beats a minute which I guess was down to my body fighting infection. This morning I had a frightening experience of an extra heartbeat which lasted 4 hours. It seemed to make a slight jump and is now normal again. Should I be concerned. Thankyou

Hi my dear,

I am sorry for the bad food poisoning you experienced after the party.

Keep drinking water with oral rehydration salts you find OTC.
Take probiotics to stabilize intestinal flora.

You might be having mild dehydration, explaining weakness you are having.

Next, you might be caught by anxiety explaining the increased heart rate.

If vomiting or diarrhea won't stop, should go to ER to start replacement therapy intravenously.

Wish fast recovery.
