9 month old gagging?

 Hi Ladies...I need some help. My 9 month old gags on every bit of solid food I give him. He has always had a very very very sensitive gag reflex. As infant he would gag himself and then smile so I never thought much about it . At around 6 months he would take about a 3rd of the 1st stages baby food jar and then gag and slowly started gagging more and more so I thought he just want ready. So I stopped trying for a while.. in the last few weeks I have begun to try again but it is worse now he cant even eat the 1st food or applesauce. So I thought it was a texture things so I tried the Gerber spaghetti O meals and he gags on that too. He liked the taste and was reaching for more but once it was in his mouth he gagged. And a lot of the time he will gag so much that he vomits. He even gags and vomits when we try those baby puffs that dissolve almost instantly. Iam so scared and worried about this. He goes to the doc on Wednesday so I will definitely be asking him but has anyone else had this problem with their LO? What could be going on? he is very interested in table food and tries to take anything we are eating so could there be a problem with his throat/swallowing?

Have you had him checked out for reflux? my ds had that bad from birth he was on meds from 2 weeks but sounds like it could be similar?

Sometimes it comes all the way up sometimes it don't so the formula might be coming up just not all the way up ya know? my son did both and we caught it because he would gag then actually quit breathing because it got stuck in his throat at a week and a half and by 2 weeks he was on meds but it stil isn't completely gone and he is 3 sometimes he still gags

Just a thought though to bring up to the dr on Wed ( i think you said you were going Wed) but it might be different. I don't know it just sounds similar

Yea it sucked to say the least. But I aslo forgot to say my ds's very rarely came all the way up he usually just gaged or cried.... somtimes it would but that  was rare. So thats why I'm thinking it sounds similar. It just might not be as bad or something? IDK I'm not a dr! lol but there is something to go off of at least!
