Cricopharyngeal Spasm Burping
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

Pain in the ribs right behind my left shoulder blade that ONLY shows up when I burp/hiccup — like a spasm. Massage and physio helps but only for so long. Any ideas?
