Dry heaved other nigh with, loose stools. Next night diarrhea twice with vomiting. Food poisoning or bug? Should take probiotic?

Sure can: Certainly sounds like food poisoning (and food poisoning is caused by a "bug"). Can you identify what food may have caused it? If it is food poisoning, it should resolve within a couple of days. If it does not, see your primary care doc. Probiotics are a reasonable thing to take along with plenty of hydration. I would not recommend taking medication to slow down loose stools. ...Read more

Constant Diarrhea for 4 days (also at night), with internittent stomach cramps. Loud bowel sounds. No nausea or fewer. Causes?

Hard to say but: Common things being common, it's most likely infectious but without better defining the frequency, volume, exacerbators, associated symptoms and examining you and your stool, it could be many different things like hormonal, exposure related, or noninfectious inflammation.
