    Good morning. How many times yesterday did you throw up, and today have you vomited and how many times? The food you ate yesterday were they prepared by you or bought? This could be the cause especially the snack. The reason you having terrible headache is maybe stressful sleep and you are weak as a result of the vomiting. You should feel better today. Drink lots of water to replenish lost fluid. Take simple analgesic like Paracetamol for the headache and just try lying in bed resting. You can eat when you feel hungry. Hope you get better soon.
