Vomiting and regularly feeling sick. What's wrong with me?

In the past week I have vomited twice (shortly after eating) and have spent a lot of time feeling as if I'm about to. I have a kind of tingling at the back of my throat/tongue which makes me want to retch and which probably gets worse after eating but no pain or discomfort as such.

Does this just mean something's up with my digestion? Should I try medication?

I've had some stomach problems in the past but this is completely different.

There are lots of sickness bugs going around.

Do you have children? I was off work for a day last week (I’m a teacher) and a few of my colleagues have also been ill.

Acid reflux?

Those would be my starting points. Pregnancy test and over the counter antacids.

Not sure about the throat thing but my ulcer used to make me vomit, and before I knew what it was, I thought it was in my head.

Do you suffer with acid reflux at all?

Thanks for the responses.

I was sick again this afternoon sad

I'm definitely not pregnant! Would be nice though.

I'm certain it's not a bug.

I've never suffered from classic indigestion - even when pregnant.

It doesn't feel acidic so I don't think it's reflux.

I've had some stomach problems in the past. That felt very different, although perhaps it could be an ulcer. But wouldn't I be in severe pain?

I will see how it goes over the next week and try to see the GP if it persists.
