I know you guys are not doctors and can't diagnosis me but coming here maybe someone has had similar symptoms and can let me know what's up.

My symptoms:
Stomach pain(center stomach above belly button), nausea, vomiting, headache, diarrhea, chills (couldn't get warm this afternoon) and have moments of just wanting to pass out from being weak.

This started about 3 hours last night after dinner (9pm) I got a headache that started in the center of my forehead. I just went to sleep. Woke up this morning fatigue, had diarrhea ... Tried drinking Gatorade only to throw it up 25 -30 mins later. So I went to sleep. Woke up in between with diarrhea. And later developed puking. So I tried gingerale. Same results as the Gatorade.

And moments ago, after a 4 hour nap, I woke up needing to throw up, only to shit myself in the process. Yes tmi I know....

Should I just go to the er? Or just wait it out somemore.

UPDATE (0805) I went to the ER at 9pm. They hooked me to IV fluids. Went through 3 days within my 4 hour stay. They tested my poop, took blood work and it came back that I had food poisoning. So I'm on a clear liquid diet for 24 hours. On nausea medication for 24 hours. I'm literally pissing shit out of my ass. It sucks!!!!! :/ I will never order a Burger outside the home again!!!! As I type this my belly is just a gurgling.

Sounds like the flu. I would wait it out unless you show signs of dehydration

Possible food poison or ecoli? What have you eaten recently?

i'd go. I'd rather spend an evening in the ER and get meds rather than be sick all night/another day.

Sounds like a stomach virus.

I hope you like your bathroom, because you'll be spending a lot of time there.

Sounds like a virus but you probably should be checked just in case

I had thought that due to eating a real cheeseburger at the restaurant.

No. Try to take small sips of Gatorade or water so you don't get dehydrated. If you are still sick in the morning, you can go to prompt care.

I never drink enough fluids as it is. So I already know I'm dehydrated. Had the issue when I was pregnant with both kids. Never drank enough :(
