Pain under the rib cage. Vomiting bile. What is causing this?

Hi. I m Hanna and I m a high school student. For the past week I have been sick. My stomach is churning and I have been throwing up bile . The pain is under my right rib cage, someone told me I have alcohol poisoning, but I didnt have anything to drink. Someone else told me I may be passing gallbladder stones. My mom wants me to go to the doctor, but I m not a big fan. Should I go? Or is this just a bug going around?

General Surgeon 's  Response

If you take alcohol than you cannot have alcohol poisoning. So that is ruled out. Secondly passing gallbladder stones in vomitus is an extremely rare possibility so that is also ruled out. What you may possibly have is an infection which would resolve if you take proper medicines and take dietary precautions like no oily or spicy food, avoid milk and milk products, take plenty of water. Meanwhile going to a doctor would be best for you.

Wishing you a speedy recovery
