    I haven't had any tests done,

    but my genetic father had GERD. I've been getting heartburn and other symptoms for at least a year and it happens very often. Changing my diet didn't work, water fasting didn't work (I didn't think about food at all.), Not laying down until at least three hours after eating didn...

    It's RPG, Actually

    Not many people know about gerd, at least that's the case here. When you say "It's just flu", people immediatly nodded and pat your back. They know what you mean. Or when you say "He is suffering because of thyphus", they shake their head sadly. But can you imagine telling people...

    I have all the symptoms of GERD.

    I've had many tests done and they were all inconclusive. Sometimes after a big meal I regurgitate my food. It doesn't always happen and I can't figure out and specific trigger foods. It's very strange. I think it could be related to my binge eating. It's probably a psychological...
