Can abdominal pain and vomiting be a sign of pancreatitis?

My 17 year old daughter is suffering from abdominal pain which is causing her to throw up. She is not able to hold any food down or drink. The pain comes and goes as period cramps do. But I m starting to think it s more that period cramps. It s a higher abdomen pain other than a lower belly pain. She thinks it s pancreatitis

There can be numerous reasons for pain upper abdomen with vomiting as intestine infection, gastritis, gall bladder conditions as stone or else, pancreas, liver disorder and others.

Grossly speaking, pancreatitis pain is severe, intense, radiating to upper back in the majority of the causes, though individual variations are possible,

It would be better to consult her to physician for one time evaluation rather than remaining in dilemma.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
