If this happens infrequently it's probably no big deal. But, for years, I thought this happened to everyone, nope - it's one of my reflux things. I have noticed that it happens less since I've started meds and there are some other things I can do to help it.

For example, at my son's birthday on Sunday I ate too much and wound up refluxing up into my nose! So, small meals and not overeating is a big help. Also, I need to avoid exercising or bending over too soon after eating.
