Your symptoms are consistent with acute viral or bacterial gastroenteritis. This condition is usually self limited within days but at times you may need oral antibiotic for bacterial type. If you have persistently high fever above 102, you may need oral antibiotic empirically. You can take imodium (OTC) for the diarrhea. There's no OTC med for vomit or cramping. Eat light diet & plenty of fluid.
