Suggest treatment for water black stool and vomiting

I have vomited twice in the last 3 days and watery black stool in the last 2 days all day, loss of appetite, no fever and severe pains in my abdominal. I had sushi 3 days ago and since then I have felt all of this, is it food posioning or the flu? I don't know what is wrong with me.

I have gone through your query and can understand your concern.

Your symptoms indicate that you are suffering from food poisoning. It is commonly due to bacterial contamination of food. You can do following treatment.
-You should drink oral rehydration mixtures to replace fluids and minerals lost through vomiting and diarrhea. Oral rehydration powder can be purchased from a pharmacy. Be sure to mix the powder in safe boiled water. Readymate mixtures are also available.
-If you have severe vomiting and are unable to drink or keep down fluids, you may need fluids given through a vein (by IV)
-In most cases antibiotics are not needed
-Get plenty of rest & you would be okay

Hoping your query is solved
Get well soon
