Stomach flu/food poisoning

I have 1 or the other. Not sure which but I have been throwing up all day and have really bad diarrhea. Sharp pains in my stomach that come and go. Very week at this point. Very dizzy and light headed when I stand up. Been sipping on some Sprite and nibbling on saltine crackers. It's kind of helping. What else can I do? I am absolutely miserable here. I feel like I am dying.

Feel better soon. It sounds like the flu. But wait it out for 24hrs if not better go to the doctors office.

Take activated charcoal - about 5 or 6 pills. If it's food poisoning it'll quickly absorb the toxins. It also helps with the nausea. 

Feel better soon!

Any fever? Sleep and pedialyte are about all you can do honestly.

Thank you everybody. I just toughed it out and slept in between trips to bathroom. Woke up this morning and feel a million times better. Just really hungry. Looks like whatever it was, it was just a 12 hour bug.

Mine was only 12 hours. It started around noon yesterday and by midnight I was starting to feel better. Very rough 12 hours tho. I felt like I was gonna die. Thank god it passed quickly. I still kind of weak today. But overall feeling much better.
