In brief: Gastroenteritis

Vomiting could last 6-12 hrs (sometimes 24hr), diarrhea 1-4 days.
Sometimes w/ fever, abdominal cramps is the last to go. If you cannot keep fluids then go to er for IV fluids. Headache and chest pain probably due to force of vomiting. Pregnancy vomiting does not cause diarrhea (good to check that as well).
