Regurgitation of food

For the past few months, I've been steadily spitting up food after I eat. If it acts up it tends to keep happening for hours after I have last eaten. There was one time before I started GERD medication that I woke up in the morning with half-digested food in my mouth. Ack! I've had an EGD done, and he said it was normal, though he also said that he dilated my esophagus to 18mm, which is considered a normal width. I was on omeprazole and recently switched to lansoprazole, which isn't working as well. I'm getting heart burn now, too. Any advice? [more inside]

I woke up Friday with a sore throat that quickly escalated to a painful cough and lost voice. What can I do to make the coughing, my lungs, and my ribs no hurt so much? [more inside]

The heart, it burns us

Do my symptoms warrant a visit to the doctor? It sounds like acid reflux to me (so I assume I'd need an appointment), but I'd like your opinion before I go. Involves chronic coughing after every meal, lasting for at least an hour or so, and heartburn multiple times a week. [more inside]

What kind of doctor do I need to see?

You are not a doctor, but you can hopefully help me determine which kind I need to go to. [more inside]

Should I worry about these symptoms?

You Are Not A Doctor: Three weeks ago, I got a nasty head cold that never quite went away. It's now settled into my chest, and I have a chronic, slightly productive cough. Ordinarily, I would just wait it out, but I'm exhausted, can't really get a full breath, and the stuff I'm coughing up tastes like bleach. I swear, I haven't been inhaling or gargling bleach. I do have an appointment to see my doctor on Wednesday (the earliest I could get in,) but I was wondering if anyone else had had these symptoms and could tell me what caused them, so I can quit Googling medical conditions and diagnosing myself with lung abscesses and tuberculosis.

Cat Has Runny Nose, Cough, and is Listless/Bored -- Anything Fatal?

Cat flu: I'm looking after a cat for a friend, and she recently (yesterday) got a runny nose, and coughs some. She also appears listless and bored. I'm stuck at work and will get her to the vet ASAP, but for now I need some reassurance that this isn't fatal? Thanks!
