Hi, I've suffered with this problem for a while now. I gag for no reason and it's very unpredictable, it can be at any time of the day, in most situations. It gives me anxiety attacks thinking about it, and I'm always worried that I will start gagging. I can get it for no reason at all, but I've noticed a few things that trigger it. Eating too much dairy, mainly chocolate, laughing too much, or doing a lot of exercise. The gagging attacks can happen once every two weeks, but then sometimes it's 3-4 times a week. My friends accept it now, since it happens so often, I just class it as normal now. It stresses me out doing it in public places, since people stare and wonder what I'm doing. I never actually vomit when this happens, I just get a sore throat and stomach from all the dry-heaving. If anyone has any idea what this could be that would be a massive help.
How is your gag reflex normally? If say you are brushing your teeth/tongue and go to far back will it make you gag?
The reason I ask is maybe check the back of your throat for anything coming in contact with your hangy ball or tonsils.
Another thought is too much acid in your stomach. I'd avoid all those things you said cause the gagging. You can live without dairy and chocolate. The laughing and exercise is a different story of course.
