Brief Answer:
Hi

Detailed Answer:

Hello
Welcome to ask a doctor
Thank you for the query.
I understand your concern.
Need to get yourself evaluated once with an upper endoscopy.
If done and still having vomiting (considering the report to be normal)
then try following things and see how you feel

1 avoid eating too much at a time
2 take more liquids and soft / mashed diet
3 avoid sleeping two hours after meal
4 go for regular walk, do some yoga and relaxation techniques
5 avoid retching / straining after eating
6 eat what to like but obviously avoid junk food.
7 avoid anxiety if any

Hope this answers your query.
Wish you a speedy recovery.
Do send reports with you if any.
Happy to help.

Hi Mr. XXXXXXX Thank you for your consultation.
Right now due to covid circumstances I am avoiding to go to the hospital. Also I forgot to mention before the vomiting sensation I was facing acid reflux but I took some anta acids and home remedies. I have been working at home for almost 12 hrs 6 days a week, can this be due to work stress? I had never faced this problem before except while travelling. While travelling I barely can eat but other than that I have good metabolism and stayed healthy.

Thanks for the query.
It could be related to stress.
can try pantocid L 40 mg once a day for 15 days before breakfast and see how you feel. (AVOID IF PLANNING PREGNANCY OR AGE MORE THAN 50 YRS OR YOU DRIVE FOR LONG DISTANCES).
Avoid stress, sleep adequately, try some sport (badminton etc daily).
Best wishes.
