Acid Reflux / GERD Board Index

Hey Sunrise.

I want to tell you a little about how my problem started. It started when I was about 18/male, and I just started gagging and vomiting after almost anything i ate. It was crazy, I was like what is wrong with me. Also, I had a ton of mucus and phlegm during this time, and tons of burping which I still do. Now at 23, I believe it has slowly progressed worsened in that I am coughing more times than not...whenever I get sick my coughing/gagging/vomiting all increase greatly. Whenever I get sick now for the last 2 years the cough lasts for 2 to 3 months. I've been on every type of cough medicine, been on Nexium for only 6 weeks last year, priolsec,, other cough stuff...The worst part for me is the gagging after I eat or wake up in the mornings. Sometimes while I'm eating i regurgitate food which is embarassing. Beer is one of the worst culprits of this for me. The few times where I am able to drink and keep it in....the morning I wake is usually awful with my throat feeling scratchy and dry mouth. Anxiety, I believe plays a big role in all of this...whenever i have interviews, I gag and throw up acid those mornings. I feel like my throat is super sensitive as well. Ive thrown up just shaving near my atom's apple a few times before and if not throwing up its gagging. Whenever I wear a tie or try to button up the top button near my throat I usually start gagging. When I tilt my head I either start coughing or gagging. I';ve seen many of you with similar symptoms but I havent consistently read about people throwing up or regurgitating food all the time. Also, after or during eating whenever I start gagging my heart pounds and my nose starts to run. When it gets bad, I also feel whatever is coming up also goes to my ears too bc every few months I get like a semi-ear infection?

Anyway, I know that was all jumbled up but if you could relate to this or if anyone has insight it would be greatly appreciated.

My endoscopy and barium swallow have come out normal. I'm thinking next to do either a 24 hour ph test or have a camera stuck down my throat to see if my throat is red?

* I suffered from crazy amounts of mucus for about 4 years and will still have big amounts from time to time.. But I feel like drinking apple cider vinegar for the past year has helped the mucus aspect of this but nothing else.
