I always hear about this thing, but I don't fully understand it. I was reading up on it, but I still don't understand how you even get it.

For the past week or so, occasional times throughout the day, like right now, I sort of have this "throw up feeling" in my throat. Sorry if that sounds vulgar. I am not nausea however, I feel fine. Another way I suppose I could describe it, is an "air bubble" in my throat.

I don't smoke, drink coffee or tea, do drugs, or drink pop a lot. I heard all of those can contribute to getting this. I spoiled my self to a bit of candy yesterday, but that is not something I eat on a regular basis. I eat pizza may once every 2-4 weeks, not sure if that contributes to it. I love hotsauce (tabasco) but I don't put it on everything. Not sure if that contributes either.

Like I said, I know nothing of this subject.

It does sound like you have acid reflux, but it's best to check with a professional. My brother had the same symptoms, but again, a doctor is best to see as most people on this board- including me- are not medical doctors.

Thanks for your response. Haven't been on the boards in a while.

Stop happening, so maybe it was just a mild temporary thing that only lasted a week. I am fine now :)
