Hello. I'm Dr Chip
This is probably a stomach virus that will run its course in a few days

For now you can use Dramamine and PeptoBismol

Customer: replied 14 days ago.
I don’t know how that’s possible because I haven’t been out of the house at all to catch any virus
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 14 days ago.

Could just be from something you ate

I’m burping quite a bit

Then try Chamomile tea

Also my throat has been sore since I vomited and my front of my chest/neck feels strained

Gargling with warm salt water will help that
