    Sudden sharp pain all over back and neck while vomiting.
    An_189753 posted:
    I've been under a ridiculous amount of stress lately. Usually when I'm super stressed out it will cause me to vomit a few times. This morning when I got up I was feeling nauseas and went to the bathroom to vomit. Right as I gagged the first time I had a super intense pain throughout my upper back and neck and upper arms. It was gone in a matter of seconds, but was so severe for the few seconds it happened. I just assumed it was from putting so much pressure to puke. Then I continued to vomit and it didn't happen again. A little later on I went back to the bathroom and when I gagged again, the same thing happened.

    For all I know it's nothing, but I was just wondering if anyone knows anything about this. Should I be concerned?
