    Welp,i think it has finally found me. I think it started a month ago. Was at work. had a pepperoni stromboli, 3 hours later was still sitting in my stomach and throat area..then i puked it up. yesterday puked up a half of sandwich and had same kind feeling and today puked up an omlette. Im not sick no fever, no chills. Sometimes i burp and my food comes up or i get acidly sour taste. I'm 99.99% sure its Acid reflux. I eat a shit load of spicy food, hot sauce 3-4 times a week, along with shit loads of ketchup and hot peppers and have been doing this along time.

    This blows.

    Like B said: just eat better.

    You get crap coming back up because you eat like crap. Your stomach is saying "Screw this, I'm not eating it."

    eating better does not make this go away

    it really doesnt have anything to do with how crappy the food is, a McDonalds Tripple cheese burger would stay down in my stomach better then tomato basil soup

    I'd go get it checked out. I know of to many people that have Acid Reflux that have Barrett's esophagus, which is caused from reflux. Another problem is it can lead to esophageal cancer

    i got that shit. i got alot wrong wit my stomach but whern i eat my stomach pushes my food into my throat and the acid thats on the food burns it. if you go to the docs plan on a bunch of bullshit. they will tell you to eat health and give you like 5 diff pills to try

    Don't throw in the towel yet, that has happened to me before.. Stayed around on and off for a couple of months, then disappeared. Do get checked out though, that can do some serious damage.

    I just kept tums around, munched on those quite a bit.

    If you get checked out by a doc, insurance will require you to take over the counter meds. You'll have to try two different brand over the counter meds. To get insurance to pay for them just keep telling your doc they don't seem to work and eventually insurance will pick up the tab on a prescription. My brother-in-law had to go through this for his barrets condition.

    I have ulcers and acid reflux. I also love spicy food and like a drink "here and there".

    Go to an endocrinologist. They will most likely stick a camera down your throat. It's not bad though, they usually will knock you out for it. Then they will recommend something from there.

    Mine put me on Nexium for 6 months. 5 of which I wasn't allowed any alcohol or spicy food. I was way worse than you though. I couldn't keep anything down, not even water, before I sucked it up and went to the doctor.

    After the 6 months, she wouldn't let me take Nexium daily and live my frigging life, but instead I take them when I feel like crap or I plan to be drinking or eating spicy food. I don't touch hard alcohol anymore. But that's more the ulcers.

    Until you see a doctor I recommend Tums or something like it. Don't use Pepto. 1)It's not meant for conditions. 2)Generally it won't even work. I always threw it up.
