    I have been sick twice and during those period repeatedly regurgitated. I now have chronic hiccups apparently caused by overstimulation of the phrenic nerve.
    I hope and prey I can go back to normal and would hope to warn people of the dangers of regurgitation. Mine did not start from a desire to lose weight but an illness, I apparently barf too vigorously, and I worry about the long-term damage that has been caused. Going to a meeting and not being able to get a sentence out without other sounds is not fun. I write in the hope that others will be aware of the profound dangers of regurgitation. Having a stupid boy not like you may not be best, but not being to speak without interrupting sounds is far worse.
