I had seen your medical presentation and understood your anxiety. Coming to your symptoms, low grade fever and vomiting generally occur in many conditions. Most common conditions are gastroenteritis, food poisoning etc.

By see all your presentation, the most probable cause might be gastroenteritis. It could be due to bacteria or virus. As your blood tests were normal, you have to confirm by
1. stool culture
2. complete blood picture
3. gastric function tests
4. serum electrolytes

Coming to treatment part miralax (polyethylene glycol) is not the accurate drug of choice. You can follow the below treatment:
1. antibiotics
2. antiemetics like ondonsetron
3. pre and probiotics
4. plenty of fluids

There is no need to worry but it is better to act as soon as possible. Hope you could understand all the relevant aspects and act accordingly.
