I was vomiting a lot yesterday and today I am having really sharp stomach pains. How likely is it that the two are connected?
Pretty good: Vomiting reflex is controlled by two units in the brain medulla--one receives nerve impulses from the GI tract, the other is a chemical receptor. Both have nerve connections to not only the GI tract (pharynx, mesenteric vessels, bile ducts) but also from brain corticobulbar areas that mediate smells, sights, & taste.

Pain : Pain in this area is very tricky since there are many organ systems in the epigastric area (above the belly button) of the abdomen. - stomach - problems such as gastroesophageal reflux, gastritis, and stomach ulcers can cause pain in these areas - usually worse with eating and worse while laying down - pancreas - pancreatitis, pancreatic stones/blockages can cause epigastric pain, sometimes radiating to the back - liver/gallbladder - hepatitis, gall stones or gall bladder disease can cause pain in the right upper quadrant or epigastric area - intestinal - duodenal ulcers, diverticulitis, infections, inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel disease and constipation can cause pain there because the colon loops up into that area - kidney - kidney stones or infections can cause pain in the right or left upper quadrant, though many people feel it in their backs. - gyne (if you're female) - ovarian pain from a cyst or even an infection from a sexually transmitted disease can cause pain in the right or left upper quadrant and back.

Took Plan B 3 days ago (Sunday) and the next day (Monday) had sharp stomach pain and vomited. Tuesday felt fine. Wed. sick again + pain? What's wrong?
Hard to say: Answering this depends on when your last period was... It's important as well to know that you aren't already pregnant. Have you missed any periods? It's possible that you may have taken the plan B too late, and so you may have ovulated and that's explaining some of your pain. If you're pregnant or the pain keeps getting worse, see a doctor asap because you could have bleeding or ectopic pregnancy ...Read more
