In brief: Many
There are many pathogens that cause food poisoning.
It is often possible to sort them out based on onset of symptoms. Most of these causes of food poisoning are self limiting. If you have vomiting and diarrhea that exceeds your input you may need medication and possibly IV fluids although rehydrating orally is best.
