Hello, i'm sorry if this isn't the correct place for my question but i'm pretty stuck. Anyway after meals I regurgitate food back into my mouth. It kinda just happens. At first (when I was a child, now 34) it only happened when I ate ice creme, but now it seems to be everything I eat. I'm also starting to feel sick after meals and I end up making myself vomit so I don't have to sit on the sofa waiting for food to come up. Sometimes it feels like if hasn't even gone down properly. Like I said after meals it tastes as it did going down but when I make myself sick to get the rest it's more like normal acidy vomit!! Any ideas what's wrong, going on. I'm pretty healthy male otherwise!

    The regurgitation could be it (see my first post). However you will need to go for tests to establish this. Your on the young side for this I think but not abnormally young.

    Things started to happen with me when I hit 50 or thereabouts, reading glasses for the first time and my hiatus hernia got worse. You don't give timescales of how long this has been going on. See your GP

    It's acid reflux or GERD for a better word. It's when you LES (valve into your  esophogis) doesn't work any more.  I've had it for over 20 yrs but last year I had surgery when it become unbearable.  The first thing you need to do is see your GP for a referral to an upper GI specialist for an endoscopy.  That's a good place to start 

    I read and experienced all of these symptoms, took all the pips over many years   Had dozens of scopes and various tests until eventually had a LINX implant so if I can help with anything you only have to ask 

    good luck

      Thanks for your response....

      I'm keeping a really detailed diary and i'm going to try and get an appointment with my gp today or as soon as they can get me in.

      Are there any foods you avoid? It's the first time I've heard of GERD (this wkend)... to be honest I just thought it was a reaction to certain foods and textures but now it seems to happen with most. Even fruit and veggies. Some foods make me nautious like chicken and eggs but I think that may be a separate issue (allergy).... It's come to a head this weekend when I realised hardly anything was staying down and my stomach seems really bloated.

      Again thanks for your response I really appreciate it!

      For me it was coffee tomatoes any acidic food. Alcohol spice, then it became every mouthful of food I ate regardless of what it was.  It got to the stage whereby I could t sleep as everytime I lay down I was sick I also suffered with breathlessness the feeling I couldn't breath and coughing like I smoked 60 a day.  I'm sure you won't get to this stage but if left untreated it will get worse.   As I say you need an endoscopy first of al just don't be fobbed off as some GPs will try to do you have to be insistent.

      Hi Lovelane09, I've been diagnosed with GERD for a few years now and I've been reading alot about LINX. I was wondering if you could share a little more information about how things are going for you after getting that implant. How long ago did you get it? Has it helped? Have any of the symptoms returned? Thank you.

    Hi

    This is exactly what happens when you suffer from Achalasia as the muscles needed for swallowing do not work properly and food gets stuck and often comes back up again.  I have suffered with this for a few years and still had surgery, but I still "chew the cud" after meals.  Try eating very moist food, in small bites, and eat little and often, rather than lots at once.  Also, ask your doctor to be referred to a specialist to test for achalasia - there is lots of information about it on this site and by doing a goofel search.
