hello ahaha 

i'm 14, and it could be that i have a rumination disorder, but i'm not sure so i wanted to ask.

when i eat, doesn't matter what, like a mouth-full is coming up again, but it doesn't taste like shit, like puking normally does. i could literally chew it down again, and then it's like nothing happened. i've had that for about 2 weeks now, but my problem is, that i can't feel it coming up again, so i could literally hold a presentation in front of the president and it could happen without me feeling that something's coming. i even stopped talking that much in my friends group, in fear of it coming up while speaking with them. and i don't really want to talk to them about it, because it sounds FUCKING DISGUSTING. 

so i wanted to ask if you'd call this a rumination disorder, thanks for the help.

I am not sure, it sounds more like a health condition... You should definitely go to a doctor.
Rumination means that you eat something and then, before chewing it down, you spit it up again, but on purpose. If this applies to you, then you probably suffer from Rumination, but if you don't do it on purpose there is for sure something wrong :/

I have this. I literally just found out. It happened during my bulimic episodes and I've been purging in my mouth, rechewing and swallowing for a few months now

Ask your doctor about it! It is rumination because you are choosing to chew it and reswallow it but it happens when your stomach is no longer working properly so gastroparesis may be part of the issue as well as your eating disorder
