hi, i am a fifteen year old female and i'm having adominal disconfort. i've had this problem for two full days and i can't seem to do anything to fix it.

the night before this all began i received my menstrual period a week late.

-on the morning of the first day, i felt like something was "squeezing" my stomach and my intestines.
-towards the middle of the day, i was nauseaed and couldn't stand the smell of food.
-at the end of the day, i started dry heaving, and took some pepto bismal for it. i ended up vomiting that up later. stomach growling took effect sometime before i vomited.

i ate grapes with some water in the morning and chicken broth and vitamin water for dinner.
i took midol, excedrine, and pepto bismal.


-on the morning of the second day, i started to feel better with no adominal pain, but also with no appetite.
-towards the afternoon, i started to gain a tremendous headache that didn't go away until the end of the evening. the stomach growling began to get worse.
-at the end of the evening, the headache faded away, but the stomach growling began to grow noticably loud. adominal pain started to grow along with it.
-black stool was noticed along with it. (before and after dinner)

i ate a little bit of oatmeal and drank vitamin water for breakfast, a chicken bake and pepsi (i know, i know!) for lunch, broccoli and noodles stuffed with spinach and mozerella cheese and pepsi for dinner.
i took midol and excedrine.

i've looked at multiple websites and i can't seem to figure out the cause. i would appreciated if someone could help with my concern!
