Some thoughts...: The first thing that comes to mind is if you're having any reflux that's happening when you lay down. Often, if we eat too close to bedtime, gravity brings the stomach acid and food back up into the throat. This could cause burning and maybe some nausea. If it's persisting, you should check in with your doctor and get it checked out. Best of luck.

Is alcohol involved?: If yes, you may have alcohol poisoning; or pancreatitis (alcohol is a toxin to the liver & pancreas). This is also a common presentation of gallstones, especially in the middle of the night. There are a few other intestinal problems like poor emptying of the stomach (gastroparesis), and more rare causes. You definitely need to see your doctor to help figure this out. Good luck!

If I wake up choking from throwing up, does this mean I have sleep apnea?

If I wake up choking from throwing up, does this mean I have sleep apnea?

No: Vomiting is not a typical symptom of sleep apnea. The gasping or choking sensation that's mentioned is from air hunger and not from anything that has to do with your stomach. You should talk to your doctor about throwing up at night and find the reason why. Sleep apnea symptoms include snoring, dry mouth, urinating at night frequently, morning headaches, unrefreshing sleep & daytime sleepiness.

Lots of questions...: You're describing bilious emesis. How often does this occur? Has there been weight loss, abdominal pain, or blood in what comes up? Ever had an ulcer, pyloric stenosis, gastroparesis? Maybe best to see your doctor at this point, particularly if symptoms are persistent or worsening.

'what does it mean if you''re vomiting undigested food after 12 hours? '

Not good: Vomiting undigested food after 12 hours can mean your GI system is extremely slowed down, and/or you have a blockage that the food cannot pass through. Are you having pain also? This calls for urgent medical evaluation. Take care.

Number of things: If it is a new problem, cold your baby be congested or have a cold and she is "expectorating" the mucus via vomiting? Or is the baby eating more and possibly over feeding? You do not mention the frequency. If this is a regular occurrence I would make sure I take her in to her doc.

Nothing in stomach: It means there is nothing in your stomach, no food or colored liquid. If there was a blockage after your stomach, you might vomit bile, so it is also an indication there is no blockage from your esophagus through the upper part of your small intestines that is causing you to vomit. Hope you feel better soon. Keep up with your fluid losses due to vomiting and don't dehydrate.

I can't eat when I first wake up in the morning, and if I force myself it makes me want to vomit why?

No appetite: It's hard to say for sure. It does not sound worrisome to me as long as you can eat later in the day and have no trouble swallowing or maintaining your weight. Best wishes to you

I've been vomitting since 4 a.m., after the 3rd time I vomitted I noticed white and foamy vomit. What does it mean?

Nothing left: Sounds like dry heaves, you have nothing left in your stomach to throw up. Try and stay hydrated best you can. Blood or coffee ground vomit is a concern more than anything else.
