    I have been very sick for the past three days. I am very nauseated and gassy. My upper stomach is bloated and distended to the point that it looks like I am pregnant. I have been vomiting a lot and having severe body aches like I have the flu but I have not had a temp....I am not pregnant. I am on Mirena birth control and have not had a period since the first period I had when I had my son 10 months ago. At first I thought food poisoning but I haven't eaten any thing that the rest of my family hasn't eaten and they are all fine...Suggestions? I am soo uncomfortable.I have always been in good health before. No allergies no other health related concerns except for migraines.....

    Nobody can tell you via the Internet what's going on here. You need to call your doctor or go to the ER. The symptoms you describe could be caused by any number of things. Some of them are harmless, others aren't.

    I would advise a trip to ER. The abdominal distention and vomiting are worthy of investigation. You may be severely dehydrated already
