Revolting Pregnancy Stuff Filter: Stomach acid has ripped my throat to shreds and I need some easy home remedies to soothe the burn.

"Morning" sickness my pasty arse. I've had a very vomity day today, and while I'm managing enough water that I'm not likely to need hospitalisation, I have thrown up enough in the last few hours that my throat is basically a big red horrible tube of pain.
I'm not having much luck googling about for remedies that are specifically just for acid irritated throats. Most seem to be targeting cold and flu related sore throats and I've read suggestions that include lemon, cinnamon and pepper, and I can't imagine the world of hurt those three are going to cause on the irritated tissue. Furthermore, strong flavours (especially pepper and cinnamon) have been repeating on me and lead to vomiting even on calm days.
It's nearly 2am Friday night where I am, so I'm limited to crap I already have round the house.
Help me out, guys. Any pro tips regarding dealing with vomit in the sinuses too would be great. (Yah. It's that awesome.)
