    You might be having acid peptic disease or gastro-duodenal ulcer which causes burning or vomiting. The yellow fluid is bile which is secreted by liver into duodenum. Vomiting of bile indicates stomach is empty and nausea is induced by gastritis. It is better for you to avoid taking alcohol. Take omeprazole for burning.

    Agree with above . Avoid Alcohol . Take Omeprazole 20 mg daily for at least 2 weeks.

    Coffee , Smoking, Carbonated beverages, spicy foods and Ibuprofen like meds also makes this worse.
