Vomiting is common in humans and its causes can vary depending upon age. If the vomiting has started shortly after food intake, then it may be the cause of food poisoning, bulimia or gastritis.

Since vomiting is the forceful emptying of the stomach with pressure, the body may get weak. The person with intense vomiting feels tired.
