Sounds: like a viral gastroenteritis (eg: ECHO viruses) and there are many during Summer months! WASH YOUR HANDS, SEPARATE your DISHES and do not SPREAD this to family or guests. Rice, (boiled) and /or rice cereal , apple juice, and avoid extremities of Temperature in the foods/liquids you consume! Many of these are over in 48 hours ...some last for a week to 10 days. Hope this helps Dr Z
