Nausea, vomiting followed by sore throat, chest pain. Acid reflux or strain from vomiting?

Hey, On Saturday morning I woke up feeling nauseous. I proceeded to vomit and did at least 3 times that day. the last 2 times was only bile . On the second day my nausea went away and I started to get a sore throat from coughing. Today I have chest pain and I m not sure whats causing it. I havent been eating that much and my dad got sick a day or two before me. He doesnt have the chest pain so is it possible I strained something while vomiting or is this acid reflux?

Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

From the description of your symptoms, it is likely that you may be having an acid peptic disease or a gastro-esophageal reflux. This could be the reason for your nausea and vomiting as well as the chest pain. Often an gastric acidity and reflux can present with pain or discomfort in the chest area. You can take over-the-counter medication like an antacid or Ranitidine (Zantac) to get relief from this problem. I would also advise you to take a bland diet for a few days and avoid spicy and oily food. Drink plenty of water, cold milk and fruit juices, as this can decrease the acidity problem.

Best wishes,
Dr. Sheeba Stephen
