I was having indigestion tonight. Ate soup for dinner then ended up throwing it all up. I was drinking coke which often helps me when I get indigestion. Then I threw up again. This time the throw up was stomach acids, since I had nothing in my stomach, but it also was the color of coke with a coffee grain look. I am not feeling well but not too badly. Was the coffee grain, coke color something to worry about or was it from the coke I drank?

I have a hoarse voice from screaming on roller coasters 3 days ago. I am a singer and have a performance tomorrow night. I was thinking of going to my regular bickram yoga class tonight, which is done is a super heated and humidified room. No hard breathing involved but certainly long slow breathing. I am hoping it will stretch me out all over including my vocal chords. I am not using my voice for speaking or anything else over the next couple days to try and recover it for the performance. Could the hot yoga be harmful in any way?
