I'm pretty sure I know what you're talking about
... I get that sometimes too. I think it could be a combination of things - being bloated and feeling sick due to hunger. Do you ever get empty stomach burps? I get that a lot. When I get really hungry for some reason I feel like I have trapped air in my gut. Then on top of that my stomach gets upset. Lots of people start to feel nauseous if they get hungry and never eat. Some people get headaches too. The reflux is because your body is constantly dumping acids into your stomach. If you're not eating then the acid has nothing to break down and it feels like it's going up into your throat. Heartburn. I've heard "never drink milk when your tummy is upset", however, when I have an empty stomach with nausea and heartburn I go straight for a cold glass of milk. It coats my stomach as it goes down and puts out the fire. It works great for me. You may want to just try eating a little something and seeing if it helps you. Maybe some bread or potatoes - something safe and on the light side. I always keep crackers with me so I have something to munch on if I get hungry.
Hopefully someone else will be around with their ideas for you. It might be slow today because it's Easter - so don't be discouraged if it takes a little while.
