Excessive burping: This needs detailed evaluation to make sure there is no lesion in your intestines causing a partial blockage in your intestines or stomach. Normal burping mostly results from the air we swallow during talking or eating however it is constant, worrisome reasons need to be ruled out. Please see your doctor sooner. If you have pain or fever also then go to ER.

Usually due to swallowing air. If you have no pain or vomiting, bowel obstruction is VERY unlikely.
