A weak lower oesophageal sphincter is usually the cause of regurgitation.  Patients report a sensation of acid or other stomach contents coming up into the throat or mouth.  sometimes it can leave a bitter or sour taste in the mouth.  patients report regurgitation at its worst following eating and bending over.  Patients can sometimes be woken at night with food in their mouth which can often cause panic at the time.
