Bulimia and excessive belching, "lump" in throat , anyone?
I have been a bulimic for the past 20 years. Last December (2011) after one of my purges I started to burp excessively! When I wake up , I would burp, before I go to bed, after i eat and before I eat, I burp all day long. I also burp up the food that I have eaten.
And also, I sometime feels like a "lump" is in my throat. I think the "lump" is the scar tissue due to many years of regurgitation. I'm sure my throat and esophagus is extremely irritated.
I stopped purging food since January of 2012. However,the burping,the "lump"in throat when I swallowed, the burping of food, all these conditions persist since December 2011 and now it is June 2012. I'm mentally up against the wall and this has made my social and personal life suffered. I don't have any health insurance and so I'm seeking the internet in hopes of finding people with similar conditions and maybe find someone who can give advice(s). If anyone is going through the same thing as me, please, please , please take your time to register and share and personally send me emails.
Anyone who is going through it, who knows someone who is going it , who had been throught it, or have an answer PLEASE HELP !I weight 130 - 140 pounds and 5'1 tall. If this information even matters. Anyway, those who are going through it PLEASE PLEASE SHARE YOUR STORY!!!!

The belching may well be a result of years of bingeing and purging.
To be sure,I would make an appointment with my primary care physician,just to make sure everything is at least as close to normal as can be expected.
The lump in your throat could be what you stated or possibly an infection.Once again,your doctor would be able to rule certain things out by a process of elimination.
Keep posting,if you're up to it.
Know that you don't have to go through this alone.
