I got very violent vomiting. I hurts very much when I laugh, cough or gag

hm I thought I entered it. I got very violent vomitting last night. At some point it felt like someone had punched me in the right side where the rib cage ends. A friend suggested since it was violent vomiting that I may have stretched the floating ribs a part. I hurts very much when I laugh, cough or gag - it really hurts. Also hurts when I stand up

Thanks for query,
Due to violent vomiting your chest muscles pulled and stretched causing pain while breathing or laughing.
This will remain for some time.
Take analgesic if required.
If vomiting is stopped,take plenty of water and lemon juice.
Ok and bye.
