Lately, frequently when i belch/burp, a bit of vommit comes up, but i swallow it back down, as it catches me by surprise, it usually happens sometime after i've drunk something, but its been happening for about a week now, and i dont really like the feeling of vommit coming up?
Do you think this is anything i need to go to the doc about, or is it normal (and will go away)?

uggh, those wet burps. everybody gets them every now and then. getting them too often can be a bad thing, though. the acids in the vomit can tear up your esophageal lining. To curb them, I'd advise you don't eat to the point that you're so full that you feel uncomfortable. Other than that, I don't know what to tell you. if your problem persists and becomes frequent, do see a doctor.

Another word for vommit coming up to the mouth is called "reflux". As Gumdrop Girl said, you should consult your doctor.
