Expert:  DR. EHTISHAM replied 4 months ago.

Thanks for the information

The symptom you have mentioned can be due to an inflamed throat which is giving such feeling. Other possibility is a reflux disease which is building up acid reflux from your stomach backward and irritating the throat. I would suggest you to take PPI like Omeprazole and som anti histamine like cetirizine for a week and see how it goes. If your symptoms does not get better than you will need an examination by the doctor.

Good luck

When I'm gagging there is no taste of acid from the stomach.
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
The only way I can describe what I'm going through is for you to imaging that you have to eat a stool sample. The gagging sensation is pretty much the same feeling
Expert:  DR. EHTISHAM replied 4 months ago.

Some time it does not give such taste in mouth. You can take the above mentioned medicine to see if it helps. It can be due to inflamed throat so if your symptom still persist then anti inflammatory like ibuprofen will help. But as I said before a visit for examination by your doctor will be required if above treatment does not work

Good luck
