I apologise in advance if this is judgemental, please correct me asap if I'm wrong.

If I am correct then rumination is a condition in which the sufferer, who is usually under 7, involuntarily vomits food which has just been swallowed, and chews it as if it had just been introduced, later either swallowing or spitting it out.

Why is this forum on mpa? Do you cover chew/spitters, or am I just ignorant when it comes to adult ruminatists?

I am honestly interested in mental health, not just being snarky about the forums.

Thanking you in advance :)

Thats how it is for me, I am currently doing what lazy egg is doing but with tomato. I don't know what causes it for me, and for the longest I would just reswallow it because  it would be hard to function where every 2 minutes I have to get up to throw up a mouth full of vomit. 

 

Plus for some people (like me) it has been a part of their lives for so long they just never thought it was something odd, in fact I would refer to it as chewing my cud lol.

While it's seen as a child thing, I did read an information thing about it once and it does say that rumination disorder can be developed in serious eating disorders too. Personally I developed mine when I still had bulimia. I was trying to make myself sick a lot and I never really succeeded through fingers, this is what works for me and tbh I don't know what I'd do without it. It's my method of purging.

 

I can feel it in the pit of my throat now. It can be really irritating sometimes.

*looks around*

Umm... I think I belong to this section of the site more than any other area perhaps. Like a few others I seem to have issues with acid reflux and GERD with doctors just passing me medications like Prilosec, Nexium, etc. primarily PPIs. They really don't know what's wrong with me, give me pills, and have me go on my merry way. I have an extreme aversion to food coming back up so I just swallow it down until it seems I'm playing yo-yo with my esophagus. I also have this issue with "normal" portions of food. I do not overeat at all.

Well... I don't overeat so I'm not the binging type. I hate vomiting so I'm not the purging type. Since "normal" portions are not working for me, I gravitate to "less than normal" portions. I eat about a teaspoon of food sometimes like yogurt. I'm totally fine just sipping on black coffee and water. This feeling of hunger is better than nausea and puking to me.

...And you know how GERD is usually associated with being overweight or obese, right?? Geez... I'm at a "normal" weight, but... I guess I'm still being irresponsible with myself. I mean, I wouldn't be having problems like this if I wasn't doing something wrong. Whatever it is, it's my fault and its up to me to control it. Maybe I really am too fat because my body is gross and not functioning correctly so I have to take responsibility for myself.

It's my rationale in a nutshell. I've talked too much, but maybe you can see a link there. Sorry for talking so much.

You all should google "gastroparesis" and "delayed gastric emptying", all of this stuff is kind of related to "rumination"; and, yes, it's hard not to "take advantage" or " abuse" this ability/"talent".

i have this issue to some extent but it depends on what i eat. I'm mildly lactose intolerant so usually it happens with milk-heavy products and sometimes spicy foods.

Bringing food back up is a common symptom of GERD as well.
