Last night I vomited at least 2 gallons of bile

Patient: Last night I vomited at least 2 gallons of bile dark green in about 3 diffrent episodes the day before I was having abdominal pain and for the past three days I’ve had almost no appetite and have honestly eaten very little and now I have a head ache that makes me feel like I wanna pass out when I stand
