occasional problem swallowing

on occasion I have episodes when I swallow but it feels like there is a flap or something that won't allow what I swallow entrance into my stomach and I usually vomit until there is only bile....I've tried warm water...bread balls...nothing helps...if I belch it usually goes away as fast as it appeared and I am OK till the next episode. It is very a very draining experience and the last episode lasted over 2 hours....needless to say, this is very upsetting when I'm trying to work. I am a little overweight but I excercise daily and admit I cheat on my diet...don't smoke, don't drink don't do recreational drugs...I do take synthroid as my doc thinks I have a thyoid problem....does anyone know what this is from or how to prevent it or how to get rid of it when it occurs? I need help!....please.
