This is typical of

stomach obstruction: gastric outlet obstruction

Stomach ulcer


Esophageal stricture.

You need to see your doctor and possibly a GI doctor.

Your doctor should order gastric motility studies.

Since this has been going on for a couple of weeks, you could easily have an acid base imbalance.

I suggest that you do not wait to have this evaluated and have that done initially now, even if in the ER.

They can arrange follow up with the correct doctors.

OK, so that is an initial answer….
