In brief: Potentially

If you develop severe abdominal pain, bloating, fever or trouble having a bowel movement with nausea and vomiting - go to an er immediately.
This could be a sign of a serious problem. The most important question is why did you do this? If it was intentionally done, you should also seek help.
