How can abdominal bloating and breathing difficulty be treated?

Hello, I have had occasional trouble with food seeming to get struck for a while like bread or meat, but evidentially goes down and haven t thought a whole lot about it until last Thurs eve after going out to dinner when I believe I got food poisoning. Within 3 hours I spur of the moment had to get to the bathroom for what I thought was just diarrhea and ended up vomiting violently what also looked like diarrhea and this went on for a few hours and am concerned that maybe something got ruptured. Now, still 4 days later, I am still bloated like a pregnant women, slight trouble breathing after I eat something and still very bloated and uncomfortable. I have ate very little in the last few days. I am 65 years old relatively good health but am overweight, but not obese
