Did they put you on any nausea medication yet? They should have done that unless you just went to the ER or if you were seen by a dr. I have Gastroparesis for around 9 yrs. now. Prior to that, I had other physical issues including asthma since childhood, an autoimmune disease, and other conditions which required many medications. I was in the same state you were -vomiting everything up, feeling nauseous all the time, bloated, pain in the upper part of my stomach, intestinal distress and I lost 20 lbs within a month. I was sent to a gastroenologist who ran tests and Dartmouth Hitchcock Hosp, ,who also did tests for a confirmation. They both diagnosed me with Gastroparesis which is the slowing down of your food from your stomach into your small intestine or delayed acid stomach removal. The best thing is to get into your Gastro dr. asap. In the meantime, look up on the web tips and diet plans for Gastro. It might help until they put you on a med. (and there are several to try) . I went thru 3 or 4 before I found the one that worked best and I still have to watch when and what I eat, especially when I am still taking other medications as well. The most important thing is stay hydrated. Sip on water a lot. Try tiny sips of Ensure or something like that which has all the vitamins and nutrients you need. Avoid caffeine, chocolate, anything that's spicey, tomatoes, hard vegetables, anything that's hard to digest and don't smoke or drink alcohol. The best thing I found was ginger and lemon. (I know , lemon is a citrus), but ginger and lemon tea works very well for me. I always drink it first thing in the morning or when my stomach is bothering me. Also, keep a bag of peppermint candies closeby. Believe it or not mint helps. I use those, too. When you do get to the stage of eating . Start off with small portions , eat low fat, low fiber foods that are lighter to digest. Think like baby foods... Eat 6 small meals a day instead of 3 big ones. (Your stomach will tell you, once you get back on track.) Just don't overeat. I hope this helps you. But I remember how hard it was for me too and how bad I felt. Good luck.
