I get a tight feeling in my throat every night and sometimes

Customer Question

I get a tight feeling in my throat every night and sometimes in the day. It feels like I need to vomit, but only in my throat. It usually keeps me up until I vomit, or go to the bathroom. I am bulimic and take large doses of laxatives every night. But this only started a few weeks ago. Is there any way I can relieve the tightness tonight?

OK--have you tried anything at all to relieve the feeling?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I tried to induce vommiting but could not
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
OK. Then I'd suggest the following
One tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in half a glass of water along with either ginger chews or ginger tablet supplements.
That should relieve the nausea and the vomiting
