Hello there,
You may have some obstruction in your esophagus. You need to visit a general surgeon and he will do a test called a barium swallow or an endoscopy to visualize your esophagus. A band like tissue at the base of your esophagus or a hyperactive lower esophageal valve may prevent food from entering your stomach and cause a backlog in your esophagus. This leads to you vomiting.

Hope this helps,
