    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...

    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...
