I usually only deal with heartburn. Today I regurgitated a bit into the back of my throat twice. I asked my wife and she said she does that maybe once a year. I would think a normal person might do it a lot more often. So what is normal? On avg. I do it maybe once a week...most people w/ reflux do it much more often, right?

As a side-note I never get heartburn when it happens, which is weird because I deal with heartburn for a lot of the day no matter what so the fact that I don't get it when I am regurgitating acid up to my throat strikes me as odd...

When I considered myself 100% healthy before GERD/LPR, I would do that maybe several times a year. Mainly if I ate too much or something. But it wouldn't burn...just taste sour......

I have GERD but that particular symptom is very infrequent for me, and probably at the same rate as before I officially had GERD. I would say it would happen once in every few months, associated with burping.

New stuff: GERD, Recurrent cystitis/Overactive bladder
Lifelong stuff: Food allergies/intolerance, eczema, asthma

I have GERD/IBS-C/BE/Intestinal Metaplaysia, age 25

Do you mean actual chunks of food (sorry to be graphic)? I would say about every 2-3, maybe 4 days I get acid/bile tasting with tiny bits of digested food.... if that makes sense. Sorry again if this is graphic!

I too am wondering what is a normal amount for people with GERD and for normal people
