Brain fog/: Certainly heavy alcohol consumption could cause cognitive issues. Any other substance abuse/use?? - Heavy drinking can cause vitamin issues particularly in the Vit B family. I might try an over the counter B supplement for 2 weeks. if symptoms continue - I would see a physician

Did you drink?: That is why it says not to drink on it. You should also avoid alcohol for 3 days after you finish the metronidazole. You will survive and the symptoms will pass, but make sure you don't drink any more alcohol.

Vomited yellow bile, even though i've eaten and drink fluids! constipated for 5 days (chronic/ green diahrea after reg bm  hot flashes weak headaches?

Viral gastroenteriti: Five days is getting a little beyond the acceptable time for this to resolve spontaneously. If you are not better in the next 24-48 hrs would definitely seek medical advice.

If i even start to drink a beer my stomach starts to hurt and i have a hot flash and feel very tired?

Your body says NO!: You may have a problem with alcohol in that you should not drink it! Some people have trouble metabolizing alcohol and it is toxic for them. This may be the case for you. It is poison to you!

Hot flash then puking and heart races. Nautious, cant keep food or drink down for a week NO ENERGY! Sleeping 23 hours a day. Some blur vision?

Vomiting: Many of your symptoms are not specific to just one illness. It is possible you have infectious gastroenteritis (mostly caused by viruses, a "stomach flu"), but it is also possible you have a life threatening illness, especially when you mention symptoms of blurry vision. Go to the ER or an urgent care center immediately. Dial 911 if you are unable to safely transport yourself there.

Hot Flashes: If your concern is that you are going through menopause at the age of 17, please rest assured that this is extremely unlikely.
