I have.One time i drank so much soda and the next day i had very bad chest pains, it was so bad i thought i was dying. I was rushed to the hospital and they gave me a shot for the pain. That was the scariest thing ive ever went through, now i dont drink soda unless its ginger ale when i am sick. I did find out that i have a hianus hernia in my stomach meaning i have a small hole. What about you?

acid reflux does not go like that it has to do with the acid, she sounds like she could be pregnant. she should check it out.

it can be that too because when the food does not go down properly it can cause you to throw it back up. she should check with a doctor.

No i dont have acid reflux but from the sounds of it its painful.I know that pain was scary,i guess you have to be careful with your acid intake.

I do have acid reflux but I haven't had an episode like yours. That really sounds scary. I have heartburns sometimes but nothing really that serious. Maybe you should try alternative medicine instead of all those PPIs. Nome of those colorful pills helped be also and they cost a fortune! I've been symptom free for quite sometime now after I avoid my trigger foods and started eating healthy.
