Default Why does vomiting happen during pneumonia?

It's not really a homework or anything. I was researching about the pathophysiology of pneumonia and stumbled on reports of vomiting occurring while having pneumonia. I've tried to search of any internet articles about it, but it seems too time-staking for me at the moment since the keywords I've used don't seem to get the results the first time.

Can anyone tell me if vomiting is due to the gag reflex of coughing while eating and having pneumonia or is there some other reason why this occurs?

I had pneumonia.. a long time ago but i still remember it
It wasn't from the gag reflex from coughing,
Pneumonia makes your stomach hurt really bad lol..
I threw up A LOT when I had it.. It was the sickest I've ever been
Everything hurts and it's SO painful just to move..And stomach hurting
& vomiting only make it 10000x worse..
But to answer your question, I have no idea why people vomit while they have
Pneumonia..

I had pneumonia the morning after my prom party. In other words, I drank and had a bad hangover + pneumonia. Both of them are supposed to make you vomit, but surprisingly I didn't vomit at all. I also didn't have any 'gag reflex'.

Maybe it's the gag reflex that causes vomiting. Since I didn't have that, I didn't vomit.

/my hypothesis

'cause your body is trying to get rid of the bad crap ;_;

I don't know for sure, but that'd be my guess.

and omg, I was googling pneumonia and vomiting and this thread shows up on the first page.

What you're talking about is called acute gastroenteritis (a medical way of saying stomach flu).

Now I know they're both form due to bacteria, virus or fungi so it's probaby possible to pass the bacteria from one system to the other, but when it's strictly occurring in the lungs, how does vomiting occur?

It's not acute gastroenteritis..The doctors at the hospital told me it was Pneumonia..WITH the vomiting it did hurt to breathe, it hurt my ribs and coughing made my whole head bulge and my ribcage feel like it was going to explode.

Really? Can you tell me a little more about the stomach problem? Did you had LBM/diarrhea during that time? Or was your stomach problem due to coughing really hard? I spoke with another peer and she said it's probably due to the bacteria affecting the epiglottis. I'm not sure still :s

No I did not have LBM/diarrhea during it..not that I can remember anyways..It wasn't due to coughing. Whenever I felt like I needed to throw up, I did..lol I didn't cough then throw up..My guess would be bacteria, or my body trying to get rid of the bacteria..
While it wasn't from coughing then throwing up, I may have coughed then a short bit after it may have upset my stomach and then caused me to vomit..I'm not sure.
