Hello this is Dr. Stan and I will assist you with your question today. I am board certified and I have 40 years of patient experience. I will be happy to help you today. I'm sorry you are having stomach issues. This may be caused by a viral infection, bacterial infection, acute appendicitis or gallbladder disease.

I want you to stand up and hop on your right foot. If this causes or increases the pain, you need to go to the closest hospital emergency, you may have an acute appendicitis or acute gallbladder. If the pain is not increased, then "flu" is possible and you need to increase fluids after you stop vomiting, NSAID such as Ibuprofen for pain, bed rest and call your doctor.

I am available to answer any additional questions you may have. Thank you for allowing me to provide assistance. I hope your medical problem(s) are resolved soon and you feel better. If you find the information I provided helpful, please rate me with 5-Stars. Thank you
