Went for an extremely long walk, stomach pain, cold sweats, vomiting. Cause of worry?

I went for an 18km walk last night (which is out of the ordinary for me). Normally I only manage 5km at most. I came home, showered and went to bed. I woke up feeling a bit sore in the stomach , so I had some water. Then I broke into a cold sweat and started vomiting . Is this just my body flushing out toxins or should I be concerned? Feeling much better after the vomit.

Hello Mike...

The symptoms as mentioned in your post may be related to the fatigue which occurred due to 18km walk.
If it is your body's protective mechanism to flush out the toxins, the symptoms will subside on its own in 2-3 days.
However, if the symptoms still persist or aggravate, it may indicate Gastroenteritis, which is a reason for concern.
Under such circumstances, it will be better to consult a Gastroenterologist for further management.

In the meanwhile, take proper rest, maintain adequate hydration in the form of fluids & ORS, and have a soft, non spicy diet.

Wishing you a Good Health.
Let me know if I need to clarify further.
Take care
