Question: Vomiting but not feeling sick

 webosb - Fri Oct 03, 2003 6:51 pm

Lately, I have been feeling an irritating sensation in the area of my throat or tonsil, It makes me vomit but I don't feel sick at all. What can this be? I thought it might of been food related but it wasnt because sometime when I drink liquids, i still end up spitting it up. I am a smoker, but i never experienced this before. Can anyone give me some advice on what this might be and what I can do?

User avatar Webosb,
I think you should have a throat examination. Are you able to swallow large boluses of food or do you feel that it holds up somewhere in your throat?
