Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

The symptoms you have described about your wife of having vomiting almost every hour,all night long & now has dry heaves,chills & headaches is most likely suggestive of a condition called gastroenteritis what you call as stomach flu. Gastroenteritis is the irritation and inflammation of the digestive tract.Its most common causes are:Food poisoning, viral infections, food allergies, improper diet, and intestinal parasites or bacterial infections.

Following is recommended for her now:

-Tab meclizine hydrochloride(brand name: Dramamine).This will help her greatly in stopping the nausea/dry heaves & vomiting.
-Tab.Acetaminophen for relief from headache.

Both these medications are available as OTC(over the counter) without prescription & will help her greatly.If still the symptoms persists,then she need to go to ER as tests & antibiotics will be prescribed accordingly.Usually & most likely,the symptoms gets subside with these treatment & doctor visit is less likely required.

Thank you.

Hope this helped

medical history is of a very healthy 67 year old that exersizes almost daily.no ongoing health issues.
Doctor: Dr Josh, Doctor replied 11 months ago

Dear customer

Thank you for replying back.

Yes,as she has no medical history & is quite healthy-so gastroenteritis what you call as stomach flu is the most probable cause of her vomiting.

This is an acute infection with no medical history.

Give her tab.Meclizine as described above.This will help her greatly.

Thank you.
