What's the sick feeling like? Is it nausea or pain?

tobisfan12 responds:

a little of both

Sounds a bit like gastroentritis, a fairly mild case too. That would make it a fairly nasty viral infection that is a bitch while it's there, but is usually not dangerous and causes no lasting harm. Best thing you can do is see your doctor to get a proper exam, at the very least they can give you a mild painkilling injection in your abdomen that will relieve the discomfort.

could i get a pill?

Unlikely. If your stomach lining is inflamed (as it would be, if it is gastroentritis that you have) then a pill will just add to the problem (they put a surprisingly large amount of stress on the stomach). But the injection is fine, it's intermuscular rather than intervenous so it's not painful.

what else could it be?

Without wanting to sound sarcastic, it could be any number of things, that one just kinda jumped out at me with those symptoms.

ok thanks

Depending on how quickly/recently you lost those 9 pounds, it could be your body trying to get them back (losing more than a pound of fat-weight a month is not a good idea)
