Gastroenteritis: The question is whether you both have a viral gastrointestinal infection rather than food poisoning. Either way treatment is simply rest, intake of adequate fluids including flat ginger ale which settles the stomach, and use of Tylenol for aches,pains and feverishness. Diet should be light with broth, salitine crackers and advancing to soft,bland foods. Symptoms should resolve in a few days.
