Thank you for your question.

Sounds like a viral gastroenteritis causing your symptoms.

These symptoms will usually settle in five to seven days in the vast majority of cases.

Meanwhile I would recommend continuing doing what you are already doing.

You should be okay in due course of time.

If, however, you develop fever again or have blood in your stool or start to vomit and have profuse diarrhea then you must be seen in the ER.

Let me know if you have more questions.
