I have anxious burping habit & acid reflux. Recently, getting over cold, have cough. Will burping & coughing at the same time be harmful to me? Tips?

Burping: Most often people who are burping often are swallowing air and creating more belching and the cycle goes on. Coughing simultaneously is probably not additive. Try not to force yourself to belch. If you have excessive gas, drink hot (not too hot) water to break down the gas bubbles. You can also take simethicone after meals to prevent gas build up. ...Read more

Feeling bloated that I have to burp for me to be able to breathe again. I have acid reflux. What to do?

Bloated & burping: There are lots of reasons for abdominal discomfort & bloating, & not all of them are due to the GI tract. Even "functional" syndromes may be present without underlying "disease." However gastroparesis, GI dysmotilities, undertreated GERD, pancreatic/biliary disease, even stress must be considered & addressed.

Starting in last 6 months every time I eat, I then burp repeatedly for 1-2 hours. It is not from air swallowing. No pain, no acid reflux?

Starting in last 6 months every time I eat, I then burp repeatedly for 1-2 hours. It is not from air swallowing. No pain, no acid reflux?

Burping issues: Involuntary belching after a meal is normal, caused by release of swallowed gas after distension of the stomach with food. Magenblase syndrome is postprandial epigastric fullness & bloating, relieved by belching. Aerophagia (accumulation of gas due to air swallowing) is common with anxiety, hypersalivation from gum chewing, smoking, drinking, oral irritation. In some, belching can become habitual. ...Read more

Sometimes when I burp I regurgitate some I know this is a sign of acid reflux but canit cause some pain on the left side of my chest also?

Yes: One of the biggest differentials for chest pain is GERD/reflux. Although it is a big differential and it seems like it could match your presentation, we wouldn't want to miss anything with the heart. I would get examined either way and hopefully your doctor can rule out any cardiac cause. Good luck! ...Read more
