Greetings.

Welcome to the site.

Well, you see severe pain abdomen along with vomiting and very high level of lipase ( normal is 20-70 u/l ) are matter of concern as this could be due to a serious condtiion like pancreatitis ( inflammation of pancreas ) or cholecystitis ( inflammation of gall bladder ) , so yes it is an emergency and please rush to ER TO GET thoroughly investigated and examined and treated under supervision.

I hope this helps.

Wish you all the best.
