So I never really use to know what the term "retching" meant but I like to think of it as burping without really burping. While that sounds kinda funny, as some of you may know it's not too pleasant to go through! It's even worse since I cannot actually burp. So it feels like just stuck gas bubbles!!! I was just wondering if anyone has had retching as a symptom of their acid reflux. I'm hoping that this is something that will eventually go away after the lap nissen. I've been so miserable between that and nausea the past 4 days, I'm looking for some kind of hope somewhere!!

I thought retching was like dry heaving? I don't really have any advice since I can burp but have you tried gas-x to reduce the bubbles?

I think most people think of retching as a strong involuntary effort to vomit. 
 
However each person has their own understanding of the same terms.
 
Good luck and keep posting here in the forum.

Yeah I think that dry heaving is a better way to describe it. It's weird though, because I do it once or twice and then I'm okay again. And yes, I think Gas-x is a godsend!!
