Thank you for visiting health24.com.
The marathon, along with the food poisoning, could have caused dehydration. From there the headaches, as well as your other symptoms. The stiff back muscles can be due to the exercise.
Seeing that the symptoms are clearing up, I would suggest that you monitor the situation and if any symptoms return, that you consult a GP.
