Suffering from cold, cough, worried about mucus in throat. Will swallowing mucus lead to vomiting?

Hi, I have a cold right now, and I have been awake for a good part of the night coughing and worrying about how much mucus is in my throat . It seems to have caused me a bit of an upset stomach. I was just wondering if swallowing my mucus would make me throw up? I am completely terrified of throwing up, and I have been up all night trying to spit out the mucus so this wouldn t happen.

Thanks for writing to health care magic.

Do not worry. If you stop sleeping because of that definitely lack of sleep is going to cause problem. Swallowing of mucus while sleeping is not going to cause any major problem.

Continue to ask further queries as required.
Hope this helps.
Take care.
