Gas Pain?: You maybe swallowing air while eating, do you tend to talk while eating? The burp & zantac (ranitidine) seemed to help, but the Burp may have taken pain away. Not enough information. I am a cardiologist. Sometimes abdominal pain can be from the heart - but somewhat unlikely in a 35yo woman, & cardiac pain is not usually relieved with Burp. Try eating slowly and talking between bites and only after swallowing.
