Hi all
I keep being asked by the docs about whether or not I have regurgitation. Thus far I have not had an episode where I have food come up as a result of my reflux. I do however, have tons....I mean tons of gurgles in both my throat and chest that can happen at any time with or without having eaten. In other threads, these gurgles were called "supragastric burps"--is that the same thing as regurgitation?

Regurgitation is when you have substance (stomach content) coming up in the back of your throat and mouth.

Gurgles would be bad burps.

Thank Joy--so i guess this is sort of like burping that doesn't quite come out?

Hi Joy, so do you think that the burping "vapors"/air is what can irritate the throat (lpr) rather than actual fluid? I wonder if perhaps I do not have as much reflux (acid fluid) as I initially thought (which I suppose would be a good thing).

Most likely to cause just as much irritation. Acid is acid...
