Rumination syndrome?
An_201509 posted:
How common is that in the average adult? Can it be confused with other disorders? My symptoms match it, but I don't feel comfortable bringing it up at my MD's office yet.

I'm guessing it's not very common. I looked it up and found:

"There is little comprehensive data regarding rumination syndrome in otherwise healthy individuals. Most people with the disorder are private about their illness, and are often misdiagnosed due to the number of symptoms, and the clinical similarities between rumination syndrome and other disorders of the stomach and esophogus, such as gastroparesis and bulimia nervosa."
