I was laughing to hard and as I gasped for

I was laughing to hard and as I gasped for air and swallowed at the same time. (I’m certain the air went to my stomach because I burped extremely loud and long twice and continued to need to burp several hours after that without drinking anything or eating anything before and after this happened.) when the air went down it felt like my stomach was stretched shortly after there was a pain that cani can only describe as if there was some sort of large cut in my stomach and throughly my flesh accompanied by a warm almost burning sensation. Everyone is telling me I’m over reacting but it has 21 hours and there is still pain. Is it possible that the air could have ruptured or damaged my stomach. I’m deeply concerned for my a few of my friends have said I probably pulled a muscle in my stomach. Please help me I need to know if I need medical attention.

I had general anethesia for an arthroscopic knee procedure yesterday, and I woke up from the anesthetic gasping, breathing hard and coughing. Is this normal? I asked the nurse a couple of times, Did everything go okay? and she replied, Yes , but I m still uneasy.

My daughter is a year old and she caught a cold almost two weeks ago and now she s coughing so much and so hard now that she is gasping and struggling to breathe and she hasn t been able to keep anything down because she coughs so much and so hard everything she rats just comes right back up once the coughing starts again. She hasn t been able to sleep much either because of it. What can I do? Is there anything I can give her to help her?

My son is 6 months old and I am sleep training him in his crib. Tonight he had a hard time and cried for about 15 mins. I was able to soothe him to sleep but he fell asleep with the gasping for air sound every few seconds. It s been about an hour now and he s still doing it. Should I be worried?
