Bile?I don’t really know. I’d avoid dairy if that is your reaction.

Because you’re not just throwing up the milk, but also bile and gastric fluid along with it.

Mixing milk and orange juice will do it. And make your puke yellow.

Question is why are you vomiting after drinking milk? I hope that soda hasn’t messed with your tummy.

@KNOWITALL I haven’t had a soda in two days. Might be the tea or Mio. Am having supper now.

My dear, the damage would not occur so quickly. It would be a long term process.
The way your question is worded you give the impression this has happened other times.

Bile is most likely the cause. I’m guessing you drank some milk on an empty stomach. If your stomach is high in acidity it could cause a reaction with the milk. If you did have an empty stomach when you had the milk, try avoiding that in the future. Your best bet is dry toast before having the milk. Also, you might ask your doctor if you should be using an acid reducer.

Why would you continue to drink milk at that point.
Yellow or not the organism is telling you something

@josie I will cut down out of my milk and stop buying any more. Thanks. I am cutting out milk and pop now. I would am switching to caffeinated tea and see if it helps.

Could it be lactose intolerance?

@RedDeerGuy1 why did you flag this as NSFW?

A man in his 40’s drinking milk is not consuming things in a healthy manner. Netehr is adding some chemical concoction such as Mio. If you want something to wash down your supper, consider unsweetened ice tea or one of the many sparkling waters. Or, you could just drink water.

@zenvelo probably didn’t want to gross out people with this question?

I think the primary reason it’s yellow, is because regurgitated milk has usually chemically reacted with your stomach acid, which is composed of hydrochloric acid, potassium chloride, and sodium chloride (salt).

Not sure, maybe try an alternative, like Almond milk.

I find that same thing to be true. I tend to rando vomit ever since I had surgery for a hiatle hernia last May. Shit, yesterday I had 3 large glasses of milk in the space of 2 or 3 hours before I got the chance to eat at about 3:00, pancakes from McDs. One bite of pancake and I lost it. I notice that if I vomit after drinking milk it’s not only yellow, but also very, very thick with mucus. So IDK.
