You should take here to the ER.

Not keeping water down indicates a severe problem, and the possibility of electrolyte imbalance and dehydration, and, in turn, effects that can cause heart rhythm problems and other dangerous situations.

If this has been going on more than 2 to 4 hours, and has not resolved, to the ER.

There is no effective home treatment for this presentation if one can not keep water down.

Be safe, not sorry.

OK, so that is an initial answer….
