Q&A: What could cause chest pain after vomiting?

Question by jacob g: What could cause chest pain after vomiting?
So 2 nights ago I vomited after eating way too much over the weekend…( I rarely vomit) It was pretty rough and took a lot out of me. About 20 minutes later I swallowed some saliva down the wrong tube and coughed. The cough caused some of the worst chest pain I’ve ever experienced and it was different than ever too. It was my whole chest and it throbbed afterward for a good 3 minutes and it happened again today with a sneeze and now I can constantly feel it in my lungs when I breathe.

I know it’s hard to tell exactly what it is but I was wondering if anyone had any ideas or if I should see a doc about it? Any I fo would be great thanks :)

Please let me know

Nancy
I have been diagnosed by my GP with Fibromyalgia, but when I was in Rehab (because I could not walk anymore, due to pain) the Dr in Rehab said he never seen any body with Fibromyalgia and tremors, so he tested me for many other things, but nothings shows. The thing is that my tremors never stops and the pain never leaves me. I don’t need a diagnosed as such, but I would like to know what is wrong with me.

Answer by mario_salman
Fibromyalgia (FM or FMS) is a chronic syndrome (constellation of signs and symptoms) characterized by diffuse or specific muscle, joint, or bone pain, fatigue, and a wide range of other symptoms. It is not contagious, and recent studies suggest that people with fibromyalgia may be genetically predisposed. It affects more females than males, with a ratio of 9:1 by ACR (American College of Rheumatology) criteria. Fibromyalgia is seen in 3% to 6% of the general population, and is most commonly diagnosed in individuals between the ages of 20 and 50. The nature of fibromyalgia is not well understood, with many frustrated physicians driven to accusing their patients of feigning illness. There are few, if any, treatments available. Although there is no cure, the disease itself is not life-threatening nor progressive, though the degree of symptoms may vary greatly from day to day with periods of flares (severe worsening of symptoms) or remission.

Health care debate: Can someone please explain the pros and cons of universal health care?

Question by plowey92: Health care debate: Can someone please explain the pros and cons of universal health care?
I don’t know what I’m reading when I research the topic. I’m tired of right and left wingers spouting off bs about the subject. All I know is the current system sucks. I cant get health insurance because my father is disabled and the government says we make too much for them to give us any benefits(load of bull). I’ve broken my ankle twice and sprained it about 3 times due to the hospital not wanting to treat me correctly the first time when I injured my ankle because I didn’t have insurance. I would like opinions from conservatives, liberals, and everyone in between.
