Yes: The post nasal drip comes from the sinuses and nasal cavity.. Those secretions can irritate your throat and trigger the gag reflex, thus the nausea and vomiting. Best way to treat this is with a steroid nasal spray, oral antihistamines (Claritin etc) and if with infection (fever),a course of antibiotics. Get well soon.
