ER WORTHY?

I don't like going to the er unless I have to. I have been throwing up since 10pm and it is now 3:35. I'm shaking, have horrible stomach cramps, bad headache etc. Should I wait it out or head to the er.?

Wait it out. Sounds like norovirus, aka the stomach flu.

Sounds like you have a stomach bug.

all you can do is wait until it passes, or they can give you suppositories that will stop the vomitting, but once the vomitting subsides try the brat diet.. ( bananas, rice, applesauce, toast) and The ER Would tell you the same thing as well

It just sounds like the stomach flu. Stay home. No need to go in unless it lasts several days or you become dehydrated. Don't take anything to make the vomiting or diarrhea stop - that's your body's way of getting rid of the invader. If you impair that ability, you'll stay sicker, longer.
