What does upper abdominal pain and nausea in a menopausal women indicate?

Posted on Sat, 13 Jun 2015 in Women's Health
Question: I am a menopausal woman 51 years. I had gone to a restaurant for dinner and had eaten a small appetiser when I experienced sudden upper abdominal pain with nausea and broke into a cold sweat. It is about 30 since this happened. I am resting now. The cold sweat is gone but there is still a full feeling in the abdomen with slight nausea. Are these symptoms of something serious? Do I need to get it checked out in the Emergency of a hospital right away?
