This is Dr. David

how old are you?

are you male or female?

left sided abdominal pain can be from gastritis, diverticulosis or diverticulitis, enteritis from viral infection or bacterial infection

vomiting can be from food poisoning, or viral or bacterial gastritis

you should see a doctor at the ER or urgent care center

for prescription anti-vomiting medications like zofran (ondansatron)

you don't want this vomiting to continue and you to develop electrolyte imbalances.

do you have an ER or urgent care center close to you?
