Migraine?: It sounds like you had a migrainal event. The nausea and vomiting probably settled your intestinal system down and made you feel better. As for the retro orbital pain/headache, this may have also lessened in severity. Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Advil may help with the pain otherwise. You probably do not have to take a laxative or administer an enema. Make sure you are hydrated. Hopefully you begin to feel better.

See a doctor: The constipation does not seem to be related to the pain behind the eyes and the vomiting. If your pain behind the eye is severe and you are vomiting without having diarrhea or stomach ache, I would worry about pressure in the brain as a worst case scenario. Or it could be that you have a migraine headache that could cause the eye pain and vomiting. You need to see your doctor to sort these out .
