What causes abdominal pain followed by vomiting?

On Sunday I had severe mid abdominal intermittent pain. After 4 hours I vomited and felt slightly better. Since then I have not vomited again. The past 2 days I’ve had mid abdominal pains associated with belching and some gas. I have followed a BRAT diet and do not have a fever. Not sure how long this should last and if I should seek attention

Hello. I feel you have gastritis or acid peptic disease. You need to follow some lifestyle tips

1. Do not eat spicy food
2. Take medications for gastritis- pantop/omez/rantac
3. Take little food at frequent intervals. Breakfast around 8am, small snack at 11am, lunch at 1pm, small snack at 4pm and dinner at 8pm
4. Drink plenty of water
5. Do not smoke, take alcohol or tobacco and even excess of coffee and tea
6. Do not take much of stress. Stress aggravates gastritis
7. Do regular exercise. Atleast half an hour per day
8. Learn meditation techniques
9. Follow this regularly for 21 days. It is said that anything you practice regularly for 21 days becomes a habit
