I've had acid reflux for years now. It's actually turned into Barrett's Esophagus (a premalignent condition that is the result of acid reflux). While vomiting can help, it can also be a bit harmful. Usually when you have acid reflux so badly, you'll vomit bile (which is practically just acid from your stomach). It can sometimes be black, or even yellow. While it may make you feel better to do it, it can be very harmful to your teeth, as well as your esophageal lining. The acid from the bile will eat away at your teeth, which is why sometimes a dentist can identify a bulemic because of the acid damage to his/her teeth. I highly suggest seeing a doctor and looking into some medication specifically for acid reflux. Nexium 40mg (the purple pill that you see advertised on TV) is probably the best pill available. However, only a doctor can decide how severe your acid reflux may be. If it's less severe, he may prescribe something a little less strong, such as Prilosec. So, if you're having to vomit frequently due to acid reflux, I would schedule an appointment with your doctor as soon as possible to help prevent further scarring or damage to your esophageal lining. Please feel free to message me if you have anymore questions!
