In brief: Sometimes the same.
With either one, you can have nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, and diarrhea, although fever is less often due to food poisoning.
If more than one person ate a specific food at the same time and both developed symptoms at about the same time, that increases the likelihood that it's food poisoning.
