Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

It is possible that you may have experienced gastritis which is inflammation of the stomach. It can be due to an infection. This is one of the causes.

In most cases, the infection is viral and lasts for 1 to 2 weeks. Treatment would include-
(1) small amounts of liquid at a time since large amounts would cause vomiting
(2) probiotics
(3) Dramamine would help with nausea but it would make you sleepy.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
