I have been bulimic for 4 years. After the last purge, I got extremely painful heartburn. I had stomach acid pooling in mouth. Is it just heartburn or something more?

In brief: No

As you know, the cure/treatment isn't about treatment of one symptom only to have this recur or worsen.
Please consider seeking a caring health care provider. http://www.m.webmd.com/a-to-z-guides/tc/bulimia-nervosa-treatment-overview.

In brief: Could be more

If you've been bulimic for 4 years, you can damage your stomach and esophagus along with many other things.
It's possible that this last bout of purging did this, leading to "extremely painful heartburn" feeling. I encourage you to please see a physician and get the help you need. Your health and welfare matter.
