I'm throwing up foam but it has a sickly sweet taste, it's disgusting.

Hydration: There is no specific question in your post. The taste has to do with what you had to eat prior to getting sick and that might be partially metabolized/ fermented. The key is to stay hydrated and try not to eat until your appetite comes back.

Every time I eat I end up throwing up foam and sometimes yellow liquid with out the food I have just ate. What could be the problem its been going on?

Throwing up: It is hard to know whether this is a Medical problem or an emotional problem. My suggestion is for you to first see a Psychologist who will help you control yourself. There is a possibility that the Psychologist will send you to your doctor but I don't think it likely. Please let me know how things go.

I have swelling in my throat I can't drink anything I throw it up right away. I'm also throwing up foam. What's wrong with me?

I have swelling in my throat I can't drink anything I throw it up right away. I'm also throwing up foam. What's wrong with me?

Concerned...: Your symptoms are potentially concerning for either angioedema or esophageal obstruction. Angioedema is a allergic reaction that can cause swelling of the back of the throat causing soreness and difficulty swallowing. Esophageal obstruction could be caused by a foriegn body lodged in the esophagus such as a bolus of food or pills. Both warrant urgent medical attention. Good luck.

What does it mean when I keep throwing up white foam? I'm worried

Mucus: This most likely means that your stomach is empty and that you're vomiting mucus with saliva. Try drinking flat ginger ale but if vomiting or retching persists, you need to be examined by a physician. Also the development of abdominal pain calls for an examination as well.

Reflux: Possible you have something called gastroesophageal reflux. Otherwise known as heartburn. Consider something over the counter like Pepcid (famotidine) or Prilosec otc. Decrease alcohol use, spicy foods, heavy meals before bedtime. If you have blood in your stool, or throw up blood, seek medical attention immediately.
