This is Dr. David

sounds like you had bad viral or bacterial gastroenteritis causing vomiting and diarrhea.

this can lead to dehydration and organ damage if you are severely dehydrated.

you should go to the ER and get blood test to check for dehydration and elevation of your BUN and creatinine levels. you might need some IV fluid of normal saline to help get your fluid levels back up so your organs can work properly.

they can do blood test to check for the flu viral infection. if you do have it, you might need tamiflu antiviral therapy.

they can also do a throat culture to check for strep throat and throat infections.

you don't want this infection to get worse

the ER is always open at the hospital.

you shouldn't wait. you should see a doctor to get these tests done
