Common: What you describe is known as post-tussive emesis (after coughing vomiting). When you have a particularly fitful episode of coughing, it can trigger your gag reflex and cause vomiting.
Dr. Vicken Poochikian
Internal Medicine 42 years experience
Possible: Severe cough can induce vomiting. Drink liquids small amounts at a time, to reduce risk of aspiration.

A 32-year-old member asked:

How can I treat coughing and colds in my 4-month-old?

Very carefully!: Cough, cold and nasal congestion are very common in kids under 6 months. Recommended, safe treatments include nasal saline drops, vaporizer, elevating the head of the bed, and occasional nasal suction. If your baby has a fever, refuses to eat, is extremely irritable, or is wheezing, you need to see the pediatrician. Do not use over-the-counter cough and cold meds, even those sold for "infants".

Which other health problems are caused by whooping cough?

Dr. Anatoly Belilovsky

In unvaccinated...: In unvaccinated children, death and brain hemorrhage are likely possibilities (they cough so hard, they can exhaust their breathing muscles or burst a blood vessel in the brain). Even without complications, constant cough for 3 months is a highly unpleasant experience.

Dr. Scott Katz
Pediatrics 26 years experience
See Full Answer: These symptoms are concerning if your baby does not appear to be growing well, if they are in pain, if the vomiting is becoming more frequent or forceful, if they have a fever or appear ill, or if there is blood in the vomit. Please call your doctor right away.

A 49-year-old female asked:

I get dizzy when I bend over or cough?

Vasovagal: It sounds like your blood pressure drops when you bend over or cough... In the normal sense the body is reacting more than what it should. Also you might have to get your blood pressure checked to make sure it is not varying significantly in different positions like laying, sitting or standing. Lastly positional vertigo is a possibility.

How long does it take for a whooping cough to get over?

UH BOY...: There is a reason why they used to call this disease the "100 day cough". In my experience, it takes several weeks(2-4), sometimes longer. This is true despite all we do to try and make your infection go away. I've had patients who have fractured ribs from whooping cough...
