Also I have had terrible heartburn and trouble swallowing for a week or so. Otc prilosec has not helped...thus where the vomiting came from.

Hi
You are suffering from a very common condition called gastritis. It is often associated with vomiting, retching and heartburn. Your throat irritation is because of the vomiting and retching. You need to take a week long course of proton pump inhibitors and also an anti-emetic for the vomiting. Please consult a physician for the correct dose.
Hope you get well soon
