In brief: Seek medical care

Vomiting blood is a red flag and deserves immediate evaluation especially with pain afterward.
You could have an ulcer or a tear in the esophagus.

In brief: Chest Pain

See a physician as soon as possible it may be nothing, but forceful vomiting can cause a tear in the esophagus (boerhaave's syndrom).

In brief: Vomiting

It is common after vomiting to have some heart burn like symptoms.
But if you have chest pain, it needs to be evaluated. Go to your doctor asap.
