Customer Question

My husband woke up this AM with stomach pain. He said its on his lower right side. He is sweating. He has nausea and vomiting. But, he is not actually throwing up anything. Could this just be a stomach bug? Or should we be concerned about something else?
It came on kind of sudden. As he slept fine all night. He has thrown up 3 times in about an hour.
