Hi,

Thanks for posting your query.

I think you need to visit your doctor.

As per the information that you have shared, there are chances of some local reaction to the food or drink that you had last night.

As both of you are having, both have consumed same, the chances of food reaction is high.

As you are having much trouble, not allowing you to drink comfortably, medical attention is must.

Please visit your doctor and get your self examined for this.

You doctor after examination will give some medicines to help you get rid of this problem.

In mean time:

Drink only liquids, plain ones like soup, water etc are better.
Avoid any spicy food or soft drinks.
Take analgesic like Tylenol that you have for pain relief.

Please visit a doctor soon.

I hope this helps.

Wishing you speedy recovery and great health.

Regards,

Dr.Pragnesh
