My wife is having sudden onset of nausea, headache and multiple vomitings an hour after eating lunch. Until then she was just fine. Her headache is combined with pain on the left side of the head until the neck. She said her vomitings were within an hour - hour and a half after eating lunch and were very violent. Any advise if this is something serious or more like food poisoning?
Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
