Why: Why were you vomiting? Was it a single day of GI distress from food poisoning or virus? If so, probably not related to tooth sensitivity. If, however, vomiting is a recurrent event, as from eating disorder, the acidic nature of vomitus can damage tooth enamel. In any event, call your Dentist to report the sensitivity.
