puking, can't poop, but what about the heartburn?

sometimes i get constipated - sometimes when i get constipated, thanks to a super weak stomach, i throw up. this lasts just as long as i can feel the rock of poop in my side. today is a particularly bad round of it. to complicate matters, i'm hypoglycemic and have heartburn from time to time. so, now i'm constipated, puking, shaking from the lack of food, and i have wicked heartburn. what to do?

i tried some food earlier (1/8 of a nutrigrain bar before i realized that my stomach wasn't going to hold on to something, some apple and peanut butter, and a couple saltines) - all of it came back up. i've stabilized with a teaspoon of water/gatorade every 10 minutes.
the low blood sugar is being helped somewhat by the gatorade/water but the heartburn is making my nausea worse...
if it goes on for 24 hours (we're at 12 hours now), i'll of course find myself at the doctor/ER, but until then i'd like to ride it out, so calls of "go to the ER!" will be ignored. also, it is super difficult for me to discuss my pooping problems under my username, so please be gentle.
oh, and i'm 28, female, and in oklahoma.
