Hi there.
Thank you for your question.
I will be helping you out with your queries.
Sorry to hear about your problem.
With the symptoms that you are mentioning you should go to the emergency ASAP.
The reason why I say that is because you may become dehydrated if you do not go to the emergency with the kind of vomiting and diarrhea that you are having.
You may also require an antibiotic course as well because from the looks of it this may very well be a bacterial infection and since you are not being able to keep anything down you will most likely require intravenous fluids and intravenous medication.
