Hi, gatorgirly. I'm completely empathetic about the food poisoning bit – my husband and I came down with it after eating some chicken a week ago. My eyes didn't hurt, but my chest and back were hurting from all the “yakking” that went on.
I think vomiting repeatedly over many hours puts stress on the body, and the weakest, or most stressed areas will let us know about it…..loudly. So, since your eye muscles are already putting stress on your eyes, that added pressure caused actual pain. You could check with your doctor to make sure, but I would suspect that it was something associated with the strain of bringing up food, and not anything additional to worry about.
I hope you are recovering nicely.
