My 9yo son had a nasty tummy bug assumed gastroenteritis 2 weeks ago, kept him hydrated with lots of water, arrow root biscuits, Lucozade and small portions of dry, bland/dry food when he wanted/asked for it, he had the odd dioralyte too, he was violently sick and had explosive diarrhoea for 8 days, with awful tummy cramps, went to the chemist who gave him buscopan cramps, which eased the tummy pains, he never gets tummy bugs, last time he puked must have been when he was 3 or 4yo.
Went through so much bleach, disinfectant and washing as younger son has lower immune system, thought he escaped it but he spent last week with the ‘poo poos’ as he calls it, he lived on plain pasta virtually all week, thankfully he only really eats bland food anyway so that went in his favour.

Hope you feel better soon, a bit of a cooler day today too
