Is it a gastrointestinal thing? Diarrhea? If so, try the B.R.A.T. diet (bananas, rice (brown is fine), applesauce and toast (ww is fine)). It isn't super balanced, but honestly...anything that you get into your body and are able to keep down will benefit you. The theory behind the brat diet is it is made up of low fiber foods, thinking that foods that are higher in fiber will worsen the gastrointestinal problems and make the symptoms worse.
Try to avoid sugary (juice, etc.) and carbonated drinks. Tea and water are probably your best bets. Also, when you drink - take little sips. The bigger the sip you take, the better the chance that you won't keep it down. It will probably take you a half hour or more to drink a cup of water. Whenever I have an illness like this, I use one of my son's sippy cups (partly because I'm so woozy that I'll likely spill and second because it doesn't dispense the liquid very fast and I can just nurse it)
Hope this helps and hope you feel better soon!
