If it only lasted a couple hours and not several days it was food poisoning...most people get it without even knowing it because they automatically label it as "stomach flu" if your doctor said 2 go if it doesn't go away I wouldn't worry about it if it's finally over with...if it comes back then go

Today I know for sure it was some virus because everyone in my house is getting it! Good thing is that it doesn't lastthat long...

Drink some pediasure to replace electrolytes you lost. I mix it with juice cuz it doesn't taste that great. Water will only replace fluids, not the essential minerals lost with vomit and diarrhea.
