Hello Sarah! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

Sorry to hear about your health

It seems like an acute gastroenteritis

Usually it is viral and start to get better in about 24-48 hours

As it is already more than 48 hours and you are not getting better so better see your GP as this will require an antibiotic course

You should keep yourself well hydrated.

Use Gatorade and diet containing banana,rice,bread and apple sauce for few days

You need to have a stool analysis and an antibiotic to get rid of the infection

Acute gastroenteritis can be linked to use of certain food if that food contain infectious organism
