My son is a healthy 23 year old. He had surgery to correct pyloric stenosis as an infant. He is having frequent episodes after eating a meal and drinking 1 beer where he gets a real dry mouth, nauseous and an easy gag reflex and ends up vomiting. He feels perfectly fine leading up to this then it hits him suddenly and then feels fine afterwards. What could cause this?
What could cause sudden onset nausea and vomting?

He needs to be seen by a physician. There is no way for us to know. As he is a grown man now, he may still have a a problem with the pyloric. A GI doc is a good place to start. The beer, by the way, is neither a good idea or a way to wet a mouth. He is taking gas into his stomach with it which may be contributing to the vomiting. The beer also slows him down and may contribute to the reflux. A soda, by the way, would do the gas as well. Water is a great idea.
This can be anxiety. I usually get bad anxiety and throw up.
