Fruit Causes Vomiting

Patient : I am an 18 year old, and all my life whenever I attempt to eat fruit I vomit within 10 seconds of chewing (my mother has told me this even occurred when I was a child around age 3). If I bite a fruit and immediately swallow or swallow a piece whole (if it's small enough), then I don't vomit but my stomach does feel strange, this has led to me not eating fruits. However, what is really strange is in a liquid form I can drink them without any effects (smoothie, juice or any fruit blended). So my question is why do I vomit when eating fruit and how, if possible, can I prevent this? Regards, Darren
