Hi i'm 21, 6'1 156lbs (dropped from 185 a few months ago)

So basically for the past three weeks I've been refluxing what seems to me like spit, food but no acid. I don't experience heartburn anymore they were very frequent when i was smoking marijuana (quit a while ago). The doc told me i had Acid reflux and gave me co-ranitidine 150mg twice a day. I wasn't really refluxing any acid though, i had no sour taste but occasionally once every few days when i woke up I'd have a minor burp with an acidic taste.
Basically if i have a bit too much water, too much food, spicy food, lettuce, tomatoes and the list goes on i start to reflux it all up. It tastes like saliva and food. It's gotten so darn annoying sometimes I'll be walking I'll burp and a huge wad of bubbly spit will fly out. I've also lost my appetite in fear of constantly burping or having the food travel up my esophagus.

I don't really know what it is (But i blame too much smoking), the doctor is telling me it's likely GERD.

I just wanted to know if anyone else burps up their food or spit or both. I'm so stressed over this so i'm having blood tests, an endoscopy and some other tests done.
