Hi Anon,

Thanks for asking & I'm sorry to hear about your discomforts. Green vomit usually indicates that you are throwing up bile, and usually there is no food present. How long has this been going on for? Are you experiencing any other different/ out of the ordinary symptoms? Odd as it sounds, green vomit is also a sign of boric acid poisoning (which can be used in pesticides and antiseptics).

Green vomit can be the sign of something serious. Visiting a doctor is probably the best option. Hope you feel better soon, and please keep us updated!
