I’m so in shock, just had a scary moment due to GERD symptoms. (TW: gross, v*mit) I was about to go to bed but I felt so nauseous and short of breath, I was also laughing really hard at TikTok’s with my bf so that made it worse, and it got to a point that I was scared I might puke. Which terrified me so I got in the shower to maybe clear my airways and calm my tummy, I just kept feeling worse and worse. Then I puked up a piece of food from DINNER HOURS AGO and suddenly felt completely better. My throat hurts now though and I’m a little shaken about it. I can’t explain how uncomfortable and scary I felt like I couldn’t get a good breath and yet I might vom and not be able to breathe while that happens. I’m sitting up now it’s almost daylight but I’m so scared if I go to sleep I’ll choke or need to puke. Ugh.

    That sounds sort of like gastroparesis, I’d get checked out by your doctor asap
