Hi,
Welcome to JustAnswer. Thank you for your question. I’m Dr. Gupta and I can help you today. I'll be back in a moment with my reply!

Thanks for providing the details, I am sorry to hear about your stomach bug,

The numbness after a stomach can be  a sign of a low salt level, take bananas, and plenty of fluids and you should feel better,

Warm regards
