Anxiety can produce: catecholamine secretion (fight or flight reaction) and these hormones often produce nausea or vomiting. Heart pounding would be an additional affect of the hormones. The act of vomiting can strain the muscles and bones of your chest leading to discomfort. Counseling would be helpful to address the source of your anxieties and avoid future episodes.
