It's a weird thing that pretty frequently I see a patient for abdominal pain, and he or she will tell me that they even "tried vomiting" but it didn't help.
I don't know why, but it seems to be a widespread belief that vomiting will make you feel better. I hate vomiting. It leaves me covered in sweat, shaking, and weak as a kitten. I avoid it at all costs. And people do this deliberately. Amazing.
