I am a healthy 82 yr. old woman with very little wrong with me. However, I went out to dinner with friends .....a local place--clean & nice. At about 11:00 PM I started vomiting-- huge vomits about every hour eight times I was shaving pains across the top part of my stomach---Terrible stuff!
JA: How long have you been in pain? Are you experiencing any vomiting or nausea?
Customer: I finally went to sleep about 2AM ---woke up with no energy--stomach pains gone but I am not at all hungry. I've been drinking water and Gatorade a little bit. What now? Is it flu or food poisoning? I feel weak and tired. What do you suggest?
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: As I said, the vomiting all night was very severe. Pain is gone, but I am not at all hungry. I am 5'5" weigh 135 ----I feel as if I should eat something but what? I am extremely healthy and take good care of myself.
