Illness concern, need quick answer ty

my father who was recently sick, complained about gerd pains (or stomach cramps) and was vomiting, also i believe that he did have a fever also. Since he had his double knee replacment i have been taking close care of him, and today i woke up with my stomach growling and feeling nausia (sp!) throughout the day i have vomited twice (made me feel a little better) and had cases of where i would get stomach cramps then need to go to the bathroom, i do have a fever also. I did have some asian food around 5pm yesterday, a small cream cheese sandwhich at 10pm and a bowl of cereal this morning which eventually came right back up.

My question is this,

with my history of frequent PVC's (have them all day everyday) should i be worried at all? does it cause palups and a little more frequent pvc?

Can the heavy vomiting cause my chest and middle upper back to strain and hurt? ( pain started after i vomited the first time, very heavy heaving)

should i not worry about it and get to bed? what medicine should i take, currently i take toprol xl 25mg for my pvc's

Re: Illness concern, need quick answer ty

I get worse PVCs when I'm sick, especially vomiting. Try to drink plenty of clear fluids (water, light colored juices) and make sure you don't get dehydrated. It sounds gross but pedialyte is really good for that. If you're on medication for your PVCs and your symptoms change during a bout of illness you should give your dr. a call and ask if anything needs to be adjusted.
