I'm 35 weeks pregnant with gerd&indigestion, in the afternoon im having excessive gas in my chest, will feel tight. Breathless &needs to burp. What is this?

3rd trimester GERD: Gerd in the 3rd trimester can be very uncomfortable. The uterus and fetus take up a lot of room in the abdomen, which displaces or moves the stomach and intestines into abnormal positions. This pressure can cause gerd. Call your obstetrician's office to talk about this and ask what medications they recommend. ...Read more

I have excessive burping, indigestion, heartburn and chest pain for 6weeks. What could be causing this? I'm in the middle of having a lot of tests.

GERD.: Your symptoms sound typical of gastroesophageal reflux disease on the surface. Or at least something more generally related to the upper gastrointestinal tract. I hope that within your battery of test, and EGD is included. As well, you should get an ultrasound of the abdomen as this might be related to gallbladder or pancreas issues. ...Read more

I've had indigestion for a few days, keep burping but nothing helps. Feels like something is on my chest, what can I do?

I've had indigestion for a few days, keep burping but nothing helps. Feels like something is on my chest, what can I do?

Indigestion: This is a long time for indigestion to last. Perhaps there is an element of esophagitis or gastritis. If you're forcing yourself to burp, you merely will be swallowing air and creating more gas buildup. Try following a bland, low fat diet, avoid gassy foods or soda, take mylanta to break down gas bubbles and soothe any inflammation. You could also take prilosec. See your MD as needed. ...Read more

I tend to burp quite a lot after every meal and feel bloated. The indigestion is especially bad with fatty foods. No pain. Is this a cause for concern?

I tend to burp quite a lot after every meal and feel bloated. The indigestion is especially bad with fatty foods. No pain. Is this a cause for concern?

Digestion issues: Not a cause for concern but, sounds like digestive issues. Poor diets can lead to problems with proper acid production. The food passes into the small intestines with poor breakdown and produces more gas which in turn causes the bloating and flatulance. I would suggest a meal time digestive aid such as papaya or betaine HCL to see if the helps. Foods that need less breakdown can also help. FRESH! ...Read more

Can indigestion cause pain in center of chest and theist area? Thinking I have a food intolerance, after I eat dairy, I feel discomfort and burp a lot

Adult lactase deficiency (hypolactasia) is autosomal recessive (ar) & present in >75% of non-caucasians & 20% of caucasians. Congenital lactase deficiency (ar) is acute watery diarrhea in infants. GERD is common & likely coincidental to, not causative of, lactose intolerance here. ...Read more

For a week, I have had burps and flatulates. It feels like I have something lodged in my esophagus but sometimes have a burn feeling. Is it indigestion?

Probably: Probably a combination of gastric reflux (causing the burping) and indigestion (contributing to the flatulence). Sometimes this can be exacerbated by sipping coffee or tea (swallowing air) or a newly developed intolerance to dairy for instance. You may benefit from a probiotic yogurt also. If this doesn't help, see your doctor! ...Read more
