I don't want to disagree with Mindy because I think in your case she was right and the pain was because you are unused to food and not because your stomach was going to burst BUT yes, stomach can burst. This is why in hospital they introduce food slowly to anorexic patients. You see when you have starved yourself for a very long time your stomach has really shrunk and if you suddenly try to consume vast amounts of food, it is possible to burst your stomach.
Vomiting though is not the solution, you cannot risk eating huge quantities of food and then vomit because that is AS dangerous. You see here you are risking tearing your stomach, or your throat because of the pressure you are putting these under.
What you really need to try to do is to start eating small meals, very frequently. Little and often. You HAVE to start eating otherwise you will be likely to binge and this could cause very serious problems.
I KNOW this is a very heavy answer to your question and I don't want to frighten you but these illnesses are killers and it is a very scary situation that you are in.
Lots of Love
