Stomach flu? symptoms of violent vomiting and nausea

i became ill at the weekend after drinking, but my symptoms of violent vomiting and nausea have contined into the week, i visited my GP who said it is likely to be a stomach virus thats been going round and prescribed me some buccastem tablets for the nausea, as i have struggles to eat or drink anything, i seem now to be able to eat and drink a litle but am still very lethatgic and weak and now today have had terrible diarreah which is hot and watery and yellow. Does this sound typical of a stomach flu or virus? i hate being ill it really scares me

Welcome to ehealthforum

Your symptoms are suggestive of some infection and if the symptoms are not under control even after five days then you might require antibiotics and other medications for controlling it.
Consider visiting a Physician for evaluation.You can also request for a Stool test which would help in diagnosis.

Take Care!
