Let me start w no insurance. Lots of constipation. But after hrs on toilet only mucous clumps n inobility to pass gas or burp anymore.
Dyspepsia: Constipation itself can lead to a "back up" of the digestive system and cause burps. Certain medications and/or foods can make this worse. Anything that relaxes the bowels can slow transit and loosen the sphincter (valve that keeps the esophagus closed) causing both constipation and burping. Keep a food diary also looking at all foods but esp caffeine, carbonation, dairy, and processed carbs. ...Read more
I have 2 endometromias, 8cm and 6cm on ovarys and also having constipation and burping alot. Ca-125 was normal, can this also cause constipation.?

PH AND REDUCING SUBSTANCES, STOOL TEST: Stool pH: 5.99 Reducing Substances 1+ (0.5 g/dL) please help I have bloating constipation burping symptoms?
The test results you provided are not meaningful. It is difficult to provide useful advice without examining you and taking a detailed history. You need to eliminate foods you suspect to be causing the symptoms. Start with eliminating milk and milk products as lactose intolerance is not uncommon. If that does not work, consult a doctor or a nutritionist.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

I have stomach gurgling and I keep burping, I also have nausea and constipation, I have a phobia of being physically sick, can I prevent being sick?
Prevention is good: I wish we all cared about prevention. But it's never going to be 100%. Standard kind-to-tummy is your 1st job. Limit food to bland easy to digest liquid/soft items - broth, tea, milkshake, lots of water. Sips of i/2 water 1/2 organic cider vinegar w/ a pinch of baking soda are magical. Once well, consider an exam to see if there's a problem to treat. If not, good. CBT therapy can help phobias. ...Read more
