See ur doctor soon!: Vomiting for 4 days isn't normal, and even if you suspect you may be getting better, have it checked out for peace of mind. You may be passing a stomach flu, but you should be on a simpler diet (bland, or liquid) until this resolves, as you are losing electrolytes and water every time you vomit. Your doctor will check how much you've lost already. Get medical advice promptly!

Vomiting: It certainly sounds like you might have recorded viral gastritis or enteritis. Viruses tend to be cyclic with waves of feeling better and then feeling worse again if you are feeling better and push fluids and you should be able to more food over the next couple of days. If you feel that you're getting dehydrated, that your pain is worsening, or if you notice blood and your vomit and seek immediate medical attention.
