In brief: Possibly.

It depends on the circumstances surrounding your so called purge.
If you had been drinking, this could easily be a poswsible mallory weiss tear, where the lining of your esophagus and stomach are torn from binge drinking and wretching vomiting. If you ate a lot of food it could still be there but less likely. At any rate, you should go see a doctor real soon.
