  • Gastroesophogeal reflux disease. It basically means that stomach acid (and contents) are coming back up into your esophagus. Quite painful, and can cause vomiting.

  • My daughter had it when she was about 2 months. She was put on Zantac and was cured by the time she was 4 months, The zantac really helped with the throwup.
