Involuntary vomiting after greasy food

Certain foods are triggering vomiting attacks right after eating them.
If I eat fried or greasy foods an urgent rush comes over me and I have to run
for the bathroom or even the front yard to vomit as I have no control and it is somewhat violent.
It started a few years ago. I ate 2 warm bread rolls with butter on them and an attack came over me
which actually lasted for a few minutes. My eyeballs were red raw. It has happened more than 20 times since.
Butter, fried fish or chicken, scrambled eggs, fish with warm emulsion sauces, warm mozzarella cheese,
anything with warmed butter.  I have had gastroperesis many years ago and non specific dyspepsia and IBD when stressed. I do have to be careful with chilli or alcohol as it seems to irritated my stomach but I am plant based with little oil, I rarely drink and eat lots of fresh produce. My sister had her gallbladder out many years ago and both my brothers cannot way butter as it makes them sick also. What could this be?? Any info would be appreciated.

Hi.  So, this can be for different reasons and I'd talk to your doctor about it.  My guess is that from the link provided, acid reflux. Even if you don't often have symptoms of it.  https://www.healthline.com/health/nausea-after-eating#causes  Certain foods will make that worse.  For me, it is definitely fatty and processed foods.  Now if you have pain in your upper right abdomen and vomiting, that could be your gallbladder acting up.  When is the last time you saw a doctor?

Thank you for your response. No upper right pain but I do get irritated in the stomach (upper left) with spicy foods. I mentioned this to my gastro last year but they thought it was a mental issue but it’s definitely not. I will talk to my GP this week. Thanks for the link.
I hate when they write everything off to a mental issue.  Sometimes that factors in because we hyper focus and every ache pain and whatnot is felt . . . but it's still there.  It's still a symptom!  Let me know what your gp says!
