Gas: Above all, don't force yourself to burp as all you'll do is swallow more air. Avoid gassy foods, carbonated beverages, and don't drink excessive amounts of fluid during a meal. Take simethicone 1/2 hour after meals to prevent gas buildUp. Consult a gastroenterologist if symptoms don't improve. Appropriate testing will be done.
