I've been throwing up EVERY single morning after I eat! Is this completely normal? I throw up bad! & I even start choking on my throw up! I'm worried!

Not normal: If you are SURE you are not pregnant and don't smoke pot a lot, consider Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome if it has been going on awhile. May be associated with migraines, food allergies, metabolic and endocrine disorders. Does it ever stop for a period then return? Do you feel nausea or abdominal pain inbetween vomiting? You need full blood workup and upperGI studies to rule out other problems-see your doctor!! ...Read more

Sorry: Sorry for the delay in answering. Erythromycin can cause nausea and vomiting as a side effect even if it is not "expired". And in general, expired Erythromycin should work fine. It would not make you sick. You probably had a gastrointestinal viral infection and are hopefully all better now. ...Read more

If I had a barium swallow test and it was normal should I still be worried about choking on food? ENT doc did exam with scoop n said all was ok

Not knowing ur medical history, you should use HealthTap Prime or ask ur primary ...Read more

I feel like im choking since I started getting a shorter neck. What can I do?

Length of neck...: How long or short your neck is doesn't have much to do with swallowing... It's what inside that counts. If you're having difficulty swallowing food, feel that food is getting "stuck" halfway down your throat, or that it often goes down the "wrong pipe"... Time to see your doc! They will examine you and might do a "barium swallow" to see how well the food moves down your throat. Best of luck! ...Read more
