My 2 year old occassionally spits up, burps, gags after eating reflux-like
My 2 year old has had many ear infections in the last year and has been on antibiotics constantly where he has upset stomach and eventually developed sensitivity to milk (thinking maybe has has allergies too).  We put in tubes in his ears just recently.  And looks like that should be helping.  But now occsasionally, maybe a few times a week he seems to be having a gag-like, reflux-like reactions when he eats different food.  He points to his throat, spits very think saliva (does not throw up the food), and burbs so loud and after that just goes away.  He digest food fine, going to the bathroom fine, but has these gag-like episodes.  Is this a damaged digestive track from all the antibiotic use?  Does he have allergies?  Does he have a acid reflux issue ?   Or is this something very serious?

Reflux is my guess. Get your boy in and have them check it out. I've been living with issues related to undiagnosed reflux for years, and it *****.

Reflux, at this point, will not have damaged his body. Even if it has, he's young enough to bounce back. But if it is reflux, you'll need to change his diet and be careful with foods and such.

I'm not a doctor, though. So, bring him in.
