ER/doc ASAP: Please see your primary care physician for evaluation and a referral to a gastroenterologist ASAP. If you are not urinating and not drinking anything, to ER for pain and nausea control, IV fluids for dehydration at least.

Possilbe: Pancreatitis can certainly present this way, but so can many other diseases. You need to be evaluated by a physician.

Time to go to ER.: What's causing your pain is impossible to say at this point. It is possible to say that if you have not been able to eat or drink for 4 days, you are in serious trouble. Go to ER now! Hopefully it will be easily corrected and is just a bad virus, but you are dehydrated which can be very serious.
