Hi,

As per your description,you have some sort of Gastrointestinal infection.

If your dark brown vomiting is persistent with dizziness,pain abdomen and you are unable to keep liquids down then see a doctor ASAP to rule out gastrointestinal bleeding,Infection.

If you are able to keep liquids down then you can try some self care remedies like

Take Gatorade.

Try OTC Zantac and Mylanta Gas.

Probiotic and citrucel can be helpful.

Eat BRATY(Banana,Rice,Apple sauce,Toast and Yogurt) diet.

Small amounts of clear cold fluids can be helpful initially.

And see your doctor for a clinical exam.

Feel free for further queries.It's good to discuss rather than quit.

Your satisfaction is our goal.

Thanks.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
