In brief: Yes

Stomach bugs, or gastroenteritis, usually have fever, nausea, abdominal pain and usually diarrhea.
Most of the time, the body is pretty smart and is trying to get rid of something, so these symptoms can be allowed to continue. However, if it is very severe or continues, nausea/vomiting should be managed.Small amounts of water can help. Ginger has been used. But often prescription meds are needed.
