Hi, last night I felt really ill like I had a chest infection coming on.

When I woke in the morning I felt slightly worse. I took 1 250mg penicillin and 2 nurofen Cold and flu tablets before I'd eaten breakfast.

About 20 minutes later I had terrible stomach pains, I was really hot and sweating and shaking and I vomitted for a short while.

I found out after being ill the cold and flu tablets I'd taken were 6months out of date but I've heard this does not harm you. I've not vomited for a few hours but my stomach still feels a little unwell. What made me ill?
