I’m confused. People seem to be using the words interchangeably here are they the same? I had thought RD involved swallowing food and bringing it back up and in chew/spit the food wasn’t swallowed. Are the words being used differently here?

Is rumination like gagless hands free purge?

They're the same thing. Rumination just means chewing. Like when cows ruminate. Purging disorder is different as is bulimia.

The DSM-5 criteria for rumination disorder are:

- Repeated regurgitation of food for a period of at least one month. Regurgitated food may be re-chewed, re-swallowed, or spit out.
- The repeated regurgitation is not due to a medication condition (e.g., gastrointestinal condition).
- The behavior does not occur exclusively in the course of anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, BED, or avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder.
- If occurring in the presence of another mental disorder (e.g., intellectual developmental disorder), it is severe enough to warrant independent clinical attention.

Regurgitation is the return of undigested food back up the esophagus to the mouth, without the force and displeasure associated with vomiting.

Even if regurgitated food is spit out, it is not the same as C/S as regurgitation is typically an expulsion after swallowing.

Hope this helped.

It's like this you swallowed some food, it feels kind of stuck, you cough a little or push and it comes back up, rechew and reswallow it or chew it again and spit it out. That's my experience anyways.

I sometimes think my throat is too small, because I can choke on.... drinks.
Yep drinks, it'll hit the back of my throat wrong and bam a coughing fit, and can't breathe. My body is weird.

That's it no more hummus. (The next day has more, lolz.)

Damn I wish I could "swallow" my c/s it's more satisfying but I can't :(
