Tummy Bug vs. Food poisoning?

The quick version: Ate a burrito Monday for lunch (shrimp). Sometime later that day started having what I thought was heartburn: a gnawing pain in my stomach, which spread throughout my abdomen throughout the night. Worked Tuesday, by the end of the day was having cramps, flu symptoms and diarrhea- sweating like a pig, 99 degree temp... This lasted throughout Thursday afternoon. It's Friday morning and have not been back to work- stomach still gurgly but no diarrhea today- just mild stomach cramps and sleepy...

Two questions: stomach bug or food poisoning? And- am I silly for not having gone to work today? If it's a bug, is there a rule for how long to wait before working after diarrhea stops? Thanks!
