57 year old female has gastric problems and previous gall bladder problems. Stomach has gas and she burps a lot.

57 year old female has gastric problems and previous gall bladder problems. Stomach has gas and she burps a lot.

Gaseous: Is your gall bladder removed? To prevent gas build up, take simethicone 1/2 hours after meals. To break down gas bubbles, drink warm water and apply a hot water bottle to the abdomen which facilitates the moving of gas through the intestines rather than forcing yourself to belch it up as this causes more air swallowing. Perhaps an evaluation by a gastroenterologist is your best course of action. ...Read more

Anxiety: Anxiety is the problem. I think that perhaps you are also anxious about becoming anxious.
