I'm not a doctor but it sounds like either a stomach bug to me or could be food poisoning. I've had both before. I would give it 24 hrs and if not getting better you might get it checked out. Keep trying to take liquids.

Hi,
This appears to be Gastritis, (inflammation of stomach ). If there is no fever or diarrhoea, chances of infection is less.
Advice you to try Antacids like Gelucil / Himcocid 2 tsf twice a day. For headache, Crocin will be helpful. This should help you. Continue to drink lots of water. Avoid Alcohol and spicy food.

Hello.welcome.This is either food poisoning or caused by excessive alcohol.the food poisoning where only vomitings are there are caused by eating food which had exotoxins in it.Just relax.Take anti vomiting medicine like domperidone and omeperazole.Take plenty of oral fluids.If vomitings dont stop then get admitted and get I/V fluids.Good luck.
