I missed that about the vomit earlier! IF it was dark - as in coffee ground, it COULD indicate a little bleed in the digestive tract somewhere (also part of the Reflux or related thing.) This DOES indicate being checked out ASAP.

If your vomit or bowel movement was a dark color, you might have food poisoning. Call your doctor ASAP. Even though his/her office may be closed, they always have a doctor on call for these kinds of emergencies. They will tell you what you need to do. Don't wait !!! Food poisoning is serious.

If you can, keep drinking fluids. You're probably really dehydrated from vomiting. If you can stomach it, drink some Gatorade for the electrolytes. Brush your teeth too. Your body's gastric juices can damage enamel.

While SparkPeople is a wonderful community for support and encouragement when it comes to question regarding medical issues, it is outside the scope of knowledge any of our members or experts can offer advice on, even if we suffer from similiar symptopms. It is best to contact your doctor or if he/she is not available, you may want to go to the Emergency Room where the health care professionals can do a full evaluation on you.

I hope you feel better soon!

This sometimes happens to me, but not with that amount of food. It SOUNDS like it could be Reflux, but there are other things it can be too. I would suggest that if you are still feeling like this that you go to your Dr ASAP OR to an Emergency Department. If it is Reflux that pain will dissipate, but even that really needs checking by a Medical Professional because there are various causes and can be treated. AND we are not medical professionals and this sort of thing can't be diagnosed over the internet anyway - it needs a qualified person to eyeball you and do the appropriate checks.

Good luck - let us know how you get on once you have had it checked out.

I'm kinda of freaking out right now, I feel SO horrible!


I was fine up until last night... Yesterday I binged ALL day... Last night around 2 AM I had an iced coffee & two cheeseburger hot dog type things from the gas station with jalapenos. I know, sounds gross now... After eating them, I felt so sick... I felt like throwing up, my stomach hurt, etc. I was feeling scared that maybe my stomach had burst/ruptured from binging (I had SO much food to eat yesterday!!!).

Today, I woke up & I feel just as bad... My stomach doesn't hurt to the touch but it feels like there's acid in my stomach/burning. Almost like my entire stomach is full of fire. My sides were hurting a bit earlier as well so I took an ibuprofen & some Tums thinking that would help. I haven't had an apatite at ALL today... The thought of food makes me want to vomit. However, I had a cupcake earlier because it's a family members birthday & not even a minute after having it, I ran to the bathroom... Not to sound gross but... When I went to the restroom, it pretty much poured out of me & it was a really dark color (I'm NOT talking about vomiting, if you catch what I'm saying).

I feel very nauseous, I have no energy, & like I said- my stomach is burning. My mom seems to think it has to do with the Jalapenos but I LOVE hot food & have had Jalapenos many of times & never feel this way... Could this still be an effect from the crazy binge I had yesterday? Is it possible my stomach HAS burst? Should I go to the Emergency Room? (The doctor's office won't be open until Tuesday)

What could this be? What should I do? Is this something I should be worried about? I feel hot but my mom felt my head & said I don't feel like I have a temperature or anything. What's going on with me?
