Acid Reflux Vomiting

People sometimes hear about acid reflux vomiting and dismiss it as a minor irritation. This is because they do not suffer from acid reflux. They do not know about the burning sensation others suffer in their chests or the sudden bouts of vomiting. They have not gone through life with the taste of acid and bile in the back of their throat. They probably do not know anyone who has had a hole eaten through the lining of their esophagus because of the constant presence of regurgitated stomach acid in their throat.

Acid reflux is a recurring physical phenomenon that involves the involuntary ascent of acid from the stomach into the esophagus. At the very least, this phenomenon causes a painful, hot sensation in the chest that some people will identify as heartburn. Sometimes the acid will rise higher and bring the taste of bile and stomach acid into the back of the palate. In very severe cases, people who suffer from acid reflux will need to periodically vomit the acid and the bile because the pressure of these fluids is so high.

Why this happens to some people and not to others is still mysterious to doctors. There appears to be a hereditary link. Certain foods also seem to trigger severe outbreaks of acid reflux. Many suggest that stress is a factor.

What physicians do know about acid reflux vomiting are the terrible effects of this syndrome. Even in so-called minor cases, which only cause occasionally disturbing heartburn in patients, the recurring presence of acid in the esophagus causes lasting damage. The acid from a person’s stomach is so strong that it can, over time, eat completely through the lining of the esophagus. Once it has done that, a victim of this condition will also begin vomiting blood. The acid will not stop there. It will now begin to eat away at any organ in the chest that it contacts, such as the lungs or the heart.

There have been a number of medical attempts at treating acid reflux vomiting. None have met with unqualified success. Nexium is a popular drug for treating this condition, but its success is limited.

Proponents of natural remedies point out that using Nexium or some other drug only adds more chemicals to a situation that is already overloaded with chemicals. Some homeopathic cures recommend the inclusion or elimination of certain foods in a person’s diet. Examples of foods that allegedly suppress acid reflux vomiting are an old combination of milk and the soft drink 7-up or the regular eating of fruits that will absorb the acid, such as apples. Some suggest that many cases of acid reflux are actually misdiagnosed hiatal hernias and recommend treatment for that condition to remove the symptoms of acid reflux.

As time goes by, more people and more physicians are taking acid reflux vomiting seriously. This condition affects millions of Americans. Each day researchers learn more about its destructive effects on human organs and quality of life. Hopefully, the days of quickly dismissing this serious malady as nothing more than a bothersome trait are long past.

I get severe attacks which come on suddenly and many times in the middle of the night. I throw up until I am heaving. Many times this includes a terrible mustard looking vile. I am not sure if this is just acid reflux and wonder if others experience this. Recently they have hit me t other times of the day or evening.

My name is Ashley…I’m 24 and a victim of heartburn w/vomiting…it had gotten so bad that I ended up going to the emergency room and tht was when i was first diagnosed with acid reflux…what I can’t seen to understand is why I have to regurgitate when my heartburn flares up…it only occurs about twice a month but at times it’s intolerable…I’m afraid there might be an underlying medical condition…
