Hi--how long have you been sick and are you having any abdominal pain or diarrhea?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Have been sick three times in last 45 mins, have severe pain in my stomach

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 3 years ago.
OK--where exactly is the pain and have you ever had this before Jane?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Pain is just below my rib cage, have had it once before

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Beneath my rib cage, once before

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 3 years ago.
Sorry for the delay Jane--is this on your right side?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

All over but worse on the right

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 3 years ago.
When you had it the one time before--when was that and did you see a doctor for it at that time?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

It was about 9 mths ago, didn't see GP as did not vomit and pain & sweats went after 24 hours. Sweats and 0pain have been since 1am last night

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 3 years ago.
OK--I can't tell you exactly what this may be but you do need to see a doctor right away. It sounds most like you have a gall bladder problem and you may have gall stones and you need a ct scan of the abdomen to look for that. Other possibilities would be pancreatitis or perhaps a peptic ulcer. Any time there's severe pain like this with that kind of vomiting it needs to be considered an emergency
