I've been having food poisoning symptoms for two days (Sunday evening till now, Tueday afternoon [I live in Hong Kong]) such as diarrhea, weakness, indigestion, vomiting. Although most of the diarrhea symptoms are gone and I no longer have intestinal/abdominal pain, I think my stomach is still not digesting food but I'm not sure.
I woke up this morning feeling a lot of pain in my stomach, the type of pain you get when you don't eat for too long and it feels like your stomach had starting digesting itself. I thought that was a good sign that my stomach acid was working again, since the previous day, I had been in incredible discomfort due to the amount of gas that was building in my stomach and making me feel weak and queazy (until I vomited and all of the semi-digested stuff came out). So I thought that I could eat normally again so I ate a pancake this morning. But for some reason it feels like my stomach is getting bloated again as I'm feeling similar discomfort that I felt the previous day before I had vomited. But if my stomach is still not digesting food, why did my stomach hurt the way I decribed this morning as if my stomach acid is working again. Any ideas? Thanks

For about 2 days until your tumm settles, you will feel hungry, drink some more water.
Then start with a little milk, see how that goes, then add some eggs, poached, stay away from anything too heavy or anything with sugar in it.
Rice would be a good second meal, only a small amount, give your tumm a chance to heal up.
Thanks for your advice. Yea, I definitely should have done what you said yesterday which would have avoided the bloating and vomiting. Before I read this I had actually eaten a banana because my stomach actually started feeling better, it felt like it had passed on the pancake I ate in the morning and the stomach pain that I get when my it is too empty came back so I ate the banana hoping my stomach was actually digesting. Its been about 2-3 hours since I ate the banana and I feel pretty ok, but still weak and I don't have much of an appetite.
I had a stomach upset last night which was either caused by constipation, a bug, food that disagreed with me or an IBS flare up Milk calmed my stomach down and stopped me vomiting.
Hmm... I definitely think milk is a no go for me as I'm lactose-intolerant. But, one time when my friend had food poisoning, her doctor told her not to take any dairy.
