I have a belch reflux disorder. I cant burp, I have pain and bloating every time I eat unless I gag myself. Do you know of any treatments?
Gastroenterologist: Don't force yourself to burp as this only causes more gas buildup. Drinking hot (not too hot) water breaks down gas and enables you to pass it rectally. Eating several smaller meals daily is better than large meals. Avoid oily foods. Taking simethicone after meals helps prevent gas buildup. A gastroenterologist is best qualified to evaluate and treat you if symptoms persist. ...Read more

Can I be physically unable to burp? My throat gurgles and croaks all the time and I let out a huge belch after I gag when I drink too fast. Help.
Esophagus not opened:
If the esophagus it is not opened-up from your stomach up to your mouth, the gas won't come out. Some spasm in any part of the length of your esophagus can occur and stop the gas from coming up.
Sometime it is easier to do than others...The more relaxed you are, the easier it is to burp...
Have fun with it, just keep it civil :-). ...Read more

17 year old boy having burning in stomach along with heavy gas and burping/belching. Could it be due to stomach cancer?
I have had very bad gas, burping all the time since having my upper endoscopy. Tightness in my chest, gurgling in stomach & belching. Is this normal?
Maybe just GERD, or: Aerophagia (swallowed air) distends stomach & may result in burping.

Hello. I don't know what the cause of your symptoms is.
Possible symptoms of reflux include: regurgitation of acid into your throat or mouth. This can leave a bad taste in your mouth or even cause you to vomit. Symptoms which fall under the category of dyspepsia include: nausea or burping after eating, feeling bloated or uncomfortably full with possible pain in the upper abdomen after eating a big meal. The symptoms can be triggered after lying on your back, eating too much or bending over; especially if lifting something heavy. Heartburn can be experienced as burning that can rise from your stomach and ascend as high as the throat.
Here is the problem. Sometimes when a person is having a heart attack, they may think that they are having heartburn. The fact that your pain goes into your back and that your heart is fluttering is of concern. You didn't mention if you have any sense of tightness or issues with your breathing. Also don't know if you have been having these events for years or if they just started.
If there is pain in your neck, shoulder, jaw or teeth or you are experiencing shortness of breath, that could be more suggestive of cardiac. Cardiac events can lead to feeling dizzy, nausea or having increased sweating. The pain from a cardiac source is often described as tightness, fullness or "feeling like their is an elephant sitting on my chest." it can occur intermittently for minutes at a time. If your symptoms are consistent with a heart attack then please call 911. Regardless, you need to have your symptoms medically evaluated. ...Read more

It sounds like you are dealing with acid reflux. Your stomach is producing excess acid after eating.

There are more serious issues that could be occuring (i.e. Stomach ulcer). Therefore you need to see your doctor for a medical work up, testing, and treatment. In the meantime you can try over the counter Pepcid (famotidine) or prilosec.
Best of luck. ...Read more

What can cause a lump-in-throat sensation immediatly after burping? I don't think I belched up acid, but...
Reflux: The lump I'm the throat feeling is most likely from reflux. Stay away from acidic foods and eat healthier and you should be ok. The lump in the throat is due to the spasm of the cricopharyngeal muscle which is the upper esophageal sphincter. When there is acid in the lower esophagus it will tighten and cause that sensation. Go online and research acidic foods to see what foods to avoid. ...Read more
