Are you having trouble to swallow food? why do you feel like your food pipe is blocked? When you vomit does digested food come out or is it undigested food (like whole food particles)?

You need a thorough check up to find out the exact cause of the problem.

The management will depend on the cause of the problem.

I would advise why dont you see a gasteroenterologist or a surgeon who could get a few tests done and manage accordingly.
Till then take light meals and avoid fatty food. Drink sufficient water.

Take care
