Brief Answer:
Spasm of muscles.

Detailed Answer:
Hi.
This is a very typical problem, rare albeit.

You have started with the vomiting, which might have been a bit violent.
While vomiting all the muscles are involved including the ones in the neck, internal and external. The ones connected with the Adam's apple get inflamed or swollen or
into spasm. All this has caused a problem you are facing; the typical difficulty like something is chocked in throat.

The resultant stress adds-on the problem.
So first of all get relaxed, take deep breath. stop taking anything orally , give it a time to relax and settle.

I hope within sometime this should start getting resolved. If not you may go for ER and injection like Diclofenac, antiemetic if nausea or vomiting continues to avoid further spasm.

Hi, My wife had a dermoyd cyst removed a few year ago and with it her left ovary. Every since then, she has had a really hard time during her period. Lately, she has experienced a rapid heart rate. She is 23 years old and 105lbs. Generally healthy but she is a smoker. She rarely drinks alcohol and doesn't do any drugs. Her water intake is good as is her diet. She doesn't feel any stress, although, our life is rather stressful. She is anemic and has low blood pressure and her heart rate averages around 100bpm during her period. Is this something we should worry about?
