    Default Gagging while brushing your teeth.

    I have this really bad issue with my gag reflex. I've always had it. Any time I go to the dentist or had my tonsils checked out I would end up throwing up in the office. It has been this way since I was a child.

    It's to the point that I throw up while trying to brush my teeth and tongue. Every time I walk out of the bathroom, after brushing my teeth, my eyes are always horribly bloodshot from gagging. It's kinda a running joke with friends a family. I'm not a bulimic I'm just brushing my teeth lol


    I've been trying to find ways to help with this issue, online, recently. I figured I'd throw it up on OT while I was reading.

    Does anyone else have this issue? And if you do, have you found any remedies?

    * Training to reduce the gag reflex by sticking things down your throat; as in fellatio.
    * MJ I think. Probably a bunch of other stuff as well. I assume f ex nutmeg would work, at least against nausea and non-reflex barfing.

    I just quickly looked around the internet because it's the first time I ever hear about this, and came across this website on "Gagging during Dental Treatment", and it also makes mention of gagging while brushing your teeth.

    I suggest you look it up.

    That's funny. I actually have this irrational fear of dying by suffocation and/or drowning. I also can't stand tight shirts around my neck. I bet it's related some how.

    That could be it. The website I linked made mention of psycholgical scars, so it's highly possible as, physiologically, there's no reason to "gag" while brushing your teeths. The parts on gagging while brushing your teeths offers a couple of decent advice to reduce gagging or prevent it, so it might help.

    That said, I'd suggest you search a bit on your fear of death by suffocation/drowning. Perhaps past experiences or watching movies as a young kid where people drowned and/or were chocked to death could also potentially lead to this.

    This is common in people with reflux. You got that problem as well?

    I seriously suggest shoving your brush down your throat as low as you safely can. I brush my tongue all the time and the gagging relfex really tones down a lot after you do it for 3 days or do (but the reflex seems to come back if you even miss a day of brushing that way).
