I'm at wits end with all this now and I have no idea what it is.. My doctor has no idea either which is annoying and upsetting.

Basically, I have this issue with my esophagus it seems. I'm constantly burping, and feels like vomit is coming up my throat, but only goes half way. I don't gag or anything though. I'm also constantly nauseous as well it seems. Some days are not so bad, but other days are. Like yesterday for example, I only burped like, 10 times in the day. But today, it's been well over 70 times as usual. It seems like it comes in waves.. Like I would be burping every 10 seconds or so for a while, then goes away for a little while, then comes back again. It's like some sort of attack.

What annoys me the most is when I feel something come up which feels like a burp but I need to force it to pass them, but then sometimes I get this liquid come up (doesn't reach my mouth) and leaves a horrible vomit like taste in my mouth. Most of the time it doesn't feel acidic, in fact it rarely feels acidic, it's just like water. I've also noticed that I have a lot of mucus in my throat, and I can feel it whenever I swallow sometimes, and it really does feel thick and horrible. (sorry if tmi).

I've explained this to my parents and doctor and they all assume it's all anxiety related, but surely anxiety wouldn't cause this?? I'm stuck and upset because I don't want to put up with this for the rest of my life... Does any one on here have any idea what it might be?? shakehead

btw, it feels as if food/drink is coming back up undigested. I remember years ago when I ate some crisps and an hour or so later I burped and (sorry if too much info) part of a crisp came back up into my mouth, and it was like how I swallowed it the hour before... I've never had that happen again though.

That is acid reflux happening. Try some antiacids to see if they help.

See if you can get your mom or dad to take you to the doctor and discuss this with him.

Are you seeing a general practitioner or a gastro enterologist? If the former ask to see the latter and they can help you. Your symptoms sound just like reflux and a specialist can help you

Yes, sounds like textbook reflux. You're in the right place. I had nausea at the beginning and that can't be easy for you. I hope you find relief soon. You might want to be careful what you eat (small frequent meals) to get you through. The more full your stomach the more likely you are to reflux. You said "crisp" are you in the UK?

Hi thanks for the replies. I am from the UK, yes. I'm getting so tired of it. :( It seems as if the nausea is almost constant and there's an unpleasant feeling slightly below my chest. It feels sort of... hot? Can't really describe it. It's been like that for a while now. Sorry if too much information but it feels like chunks is coming back up my throat, but only half way, if you know what I mean? It's horrible because it feels like vomit or something and I'm petrified of being sick. Every day is a constant struggle and battle getting through this. My parents think I'm crazy and am getting tired of me complaining every day of how awful I feel. I'm seeing a doctor again on the 14th and just HOPING they can actually diagnose me properly, instead of saying it's just anxiety... I've had this problem for MANY years before I had anxiety, so it can't be that.... Of course, anxiety makes it worse but it's still there even when I'm not anxious. My parents are also blaming it on anxiety and it's driving me crazy. :( What questions should I ask my doctor? Thanks.
