ER: This is not the place in which to undergo evaluation for a chronic process. This needs careful assessment with history, physical exam and labs and possibly endoscopy or other procedures and should be done by a doctor with the time and training to do this. An ER, although staffed by wonderful concerned doctors, in not equipped for this. Go see a GI doctor. Good luck and hope this clears up soon. ...Read more

My voice is hoarse and it is very painful to swallow anything after throwing up yesterday from stomach flu. What caused it how long would it last?

Stomach acid: Vomiting causes the contents of the stomach to be regurgitated back up the esophagus, into the throat and mouth. The stomach contains a fair amount of acid in order to help digest food. When you vomit, this acid comes up as well, and vomiting repeatedly can irritate the esophagus and throat, which is likely what you are experiencing. Time will help but can try an anesthetic like chloraseptic too. ...Read more
