Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum

You must be feeling well by now. Either you had a panic attack or you had a case of stomach flu or the panic attack started the stomach symptoms.

Drink plenty of fluids. Take lactobacillus and curd. Eat light. Take ORS. Take over the counter antacid. Eat small light meals like a lightly buttered toast, yoghurt, porridge, cornflakes.

If symptoms settle down then it is fine. Else consult a doctor. Hope this helps. Take care!
