Does your stomach stop digesting if you eat some tainted…

Customer Question
Does your stomach stop...

Does your stomach stop digesting if you eat some tainted food? Sunday evening I ate dinner at 6pm , around midnight I was getting sick had diarrhea tried to vomit, did a little. The rest of the night was real miserable with more diarrhea and lots of stomach pain. I had stomach pain all day Monday with more diarrhea Around 8pm I vomited all my dinner from the night before, I started to feel better right away. Should I be worried about some kind of blockage? because to have that food in my stomach for that long seems abnormal .

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been in pain? Are you experiencing any vomiting or nausea?

Just from Sunday around midnight, around 1am last night i vomited what was left from Sunday dinner then felt much better . Now neither vomiting nor nausea a little diarrhea yet.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No never had anything like this

I am wondering if that is abnormal for my stomach to hold food that long pleas reread my first question for a time line
Doctor: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 5 months ago

I read your timeline

the vomiting comes from the intestines too

not just the stomach
