With food poisoning it is best to let the body get rid of all the irritants and the toxins whilst keeping an eye out for dehydration.

Start on a low fiber diet immediately to stop irritating the GI system.

Bananas, rice, applesauce, toast, tea, refined cereals etc.

Drink a lot of water - oral hydration solutions like Pedialyte or Gatorade are recommended.

Get some bed rest.

For the nausea, you can start taking an anti emetic that is over the counter like Chlorpheniramine twice a day.

If you have pain, then the best thing to take is a tylenol, taking an NSAID can aggravate things further by irritating the stomach further.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
