Suggest treatment for severe vomiting

default
Posted on Wed, 1 Jun 2016
Question: Hi. I'm somewhat alarmed. I've been vomiting sporadically since a little after 10pm last night. After the first episode, through the night I was retching foamy mucus mixed with water. This morning, however, my vomit had gradually changed from clear and foamy to an orangey-brown color, all the while I'm trying to drink water the whole time so I don't become too dehydrated. The two most recent batches, upon further inspection revealed dark brown, nearly black globs intermixed with that same orangey-brown liquid.

I haven't been able to keep anything down and I'm growing more and more concerned as I'm left alone with my toddler sister while my parents are a few hours away finalizing the closing on their new house, due to be back at around 5pm today.

I feel it's worth mentioning that last night after my first bout of vomiting I had consumed <.25 grams of cocaine, however no blood is coming from my nose and nothing that is coming out looks bright red, not to mention the cannabis I tried to use to control the nausea after this started.

I've vomited around 10 times, give or take since I started last night.

Please advise

My apologies, I mistakenly had the app open. My parents will be home at 5pm, as well as a family friend. My parents are in the middle of moving so we have this family friend to drive one of the cars up. My step-mom, sister, and I will be dropped off at an urgent care clinic by this friend on his way out of town.

I will attach some images of these black globs in my vomit, and I will show the individual in charge of my treatment as well. I had not injested any dark foods, though I had a few small sips of whole milk about a half hour before I had produced the vomit you see in these images

Many thanks in advance..
