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. ...Read more

Ate pizza with pineapples on it. With no red sauce (avoid because of ulcers). I feel nauseated with belching, what can I take? No vomiting.

Many good options: My first recommendation is the homeopathic remedy nux vomica, widely available at health food stores, which usually works wonders when you eat something that doesn't agree & is worth having on hand for future use, but you probably don't have that around so you can try 1/8 tsp of baking soda in water, ginger tea or pepto-bismol.
