In brief: I recommend to go ER

With history of pancreatitis and not able to tolerate any liquids and dizziness is not a good sign.
You will need aggressive IV hydration. Pancreatitis can be the cause again, which needs prompt resuscitation with IV fluids. Please do not delay the care. It is a good thing if it is simple gastroenteritis but you still need IV fluids.
