HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

Persistent vomiting can be related to different conditions such as (1) GERD (this would also cause the bloating that you are experiencing) , peptic ulcer disease
(2) obstruction of the bowel due to scar tissue, a mass
(3) side effect of medication
(4)neurological disease such as a complication of diabetes
(5) anxiety
(6) electrolyte imbalance such as high calcium

You may want to consider re visiting your doctor for an evaluation. He or she will review your history and examine you.
This may be followed by investigations such as a barium meal or endoscopy to see inside the esophagus and stomach.

Treatment would depend on the findings

I hope this helps
