Regurgitation is the involuntary return of partially digested food from the stomach into the mouth. This uncomfortable symptom is commonly caused by GERD, since the LES is damaged to such a severe degree that stomach juices can freely reflux to the level of the throat. Although regurgitation from acid reflux can occur at any time, including after a meal, it is most alarming when it occurs at night. The usual scenario is abruptly waking at night with bitter liquid in the throat accompanied by a feeling of panic. In response to this, you likely sit up immediately. After a minute or so the regurgitation clears and a horrible bitter and usually burning feeling remains in the throat. You typically will run to the bathroom and drink water hoping for relief, and then search out Maalox, Mylanta or even some baking soda dissolved in water. As opposed to vomiting, regurgitation tends to happen without any warning. Here are best remedies :
