In brief: Throw up?

Throwing up is a violent movement from your stomach to your throat.
Soreness is to be expected. Rinse out with warm salt water and your throat should get better in a day to two.

In brief: Gastric

Gastric acid can irritate the throat.
Also, if vomiting was a result of a virus tonsilar pain can be a sign of an infection. However if the pain does not resolve it should be evaluated by a physician.C.
