Brief Answer:

Detailed Answer:
Your symptoms seem to be due to Esophagitis caused by vomiting.
I would suggest to take Omeprazole which is available as a over the counter medicine.
And antacid like Gelusil will help you with the burning sensation.
Avoid alcohol and meat and deep fried foods. Avoid too hot and too cold foods
Hope this helps
