Nathalie Edwards-Leroux
uh, well probably not i guess, i don't know. they are all just symptoms of your LES not closing properly, i guess it's up to you to decide which symptoms are worse than others. personally i prefer to burp than to puke. ;)

Leslie Herrera
Hahaha yea that's true lol :-)

Nathalie Edwards-Leroux
the food usually comes up in instances where either, you overate and your belly is really full. or maybe if you drank a lot of liquids during or right after or before meal, this can definitely do it. otherwise it should be just these harsh dry deep burps. and nausea.

Leslie Herrera
Does the burping and nausea still hurt (cause harm)to your esophagus

Nathalie Edwards-Leroux
usually if you eat a little something it helps. think of it as like morning sickness (which it basically is exactly like). if you start burping and having nausea, and you haven't just eaten (i know mine will happen on an empty stomach too) try eating a few dry roasted almonds or crackers or have a few sips of water that should wash the acid down temporarily.

Nathalie Edwards-Leroux
yeah, it all does. :( but just remember that lots of people go their whole lives without even realizing that they are having acid reflux. you can take gaviscon to protect your esophagus, and zantac to stop the acid (unless you are already on a PPI, in which case you should ask your doctor about taking zantac as well.)

mine tends to come and go at different times of the month, try keeping track, mine is clock work hormonal, always in the week before my period. and for one or two days mid cycle when i'm ovulating. it took me like five years to realize this though. lol.

Is that funny taste also acid i wasnt getting that but now lately im having that :/

Nathalie Edwards-Leroux
yes. it probably is. it's pretty gross isn't it? drink water, that's the best thing you can do for that horrible mouth acid taste.

Maggie Sanchez
Yes its just horrible taste its like a metal taste or bloody taste euwww

Nathalie Edwards-Leroux
yep that metal taste is acid reflux. i find the more hydrated i am, i.e. the more water i drink, the less i have this taste. but that might be just because i keep washing the acid down.

Maggie Sanchez
Well i am not drinking water like i used too maybe thats why i have the acid coming up

Nathalie Edwards-Leroux
who knows, this disease is crazy fickle. you try shit, and whatever works you repeat it until it doesn't work anymore. then you try something else. lol

Maggie Sanchez
Yup i know its a never ending battle with this damn disease
