Rehydration Crucial: Most common cause of "stomach Flu" in the United States is norovirus. Food poisoning, on the other hand, can be infection by a range of bacteria, viruses, and parasites that enter the body after a person consumes unhygienically prepared or contaminated food.A rapid stool test can be used to detect the rotavirus or norovirus inf. Probotics may be useful. ORS rec in elderly >65, children &infants

Gastroenteritis...: Sometimes, "food poisoning" from salmonella, e. coli, shigella, etc. can cause localized pain to the right lower quadrant (abdomen) area. However, right lower quadrant pain could also be from appendicitis. Some bacterial causes of gastroenteritis can mimic appendicitis. If you're pain is getting worse, see your doctor.

Water and : electroytes. If there is no diarrhea and vomiting, you need not see a doctor. Do take enough water and may be an electrolyte drink like Gatorade. Have a healthy diet, exercise 30 minutes/day, drink plenty of water, have safe sex, no tobacco alcohol weed or street drugs. For nutrition: http://www.choosemyplate.gov/.

Not Flu.: Real influenza infection has high fever. If you don't have fever, you probably do not have Flu. Your symptoms sound like just gastroenteritis.
