My 87 old mother has recently vomited 6 or 7 minutes after eating her tea.preceeded by a sharpish pain in her stomach.this has happened 4 times in the last 2 weeks..she has no problem or pain while eating..her breakfast has not given her a problem..what do you think it could be?..

Hi! I am Dr Saleem. Welcome to JA. I will be answering your query shortly

Tea can irritate your stomach and the fact that she is vomiting frequently after consuming it means her stomach is inflammed. We call it gastritis. Give her Omeprazole 20mg daily , it should help .

Avoid tea , spicy or hot foods and carboated drinks.

Hope she feels better soon.
