have you been exposed to an stomach bug?

the best thing to do is to keep up on the fluids - in these situations cold water can be better tolerated, drink it with a straw to minimize the head motions.

If you have gatorade - it can help to replace electrolytes that you lose by throwing up the stomach contents - chill it and drink it with the straw.

If this continues over 24 hours, or if you are unable to hold down any fluids, seek care before your blood pressure suffers.

Wish you a speedy recovery.

Warm regards.
