Gluten sensitivity?: I would think that they key is you feel fine when you eat gluten-free foods. This is not the same as celiac disease in which no gluten can be tolerated and which is more serious causing damaging intestinal inflammation. Testing can determine if one has celiac disease, gluten allergy or gluten sensitivity/intolerance. I recommend you have this testing done. Good wishes:) ...Read more

You may have reflux: Gastroesophageal reflux is when the valve that holds what you swallow in the stomach is incompetent. Instead of your food, even air you swallow moving toward the intestines, the valve is not strong enough, so food, stomach acid, even air goes "backward". The acid can burn esophagus & stomach, causing GI symptoms incl. Bloating & the air going backwards resulting in frequent burping. See your dr. ...Read more

Gastric pain: So called "indigestion" or "heartburn" is generally associated with excess of stomach acidity.

Will take time: Sounds like you stomach did not like what you had to eat, and you are tired. These symptoms should subside in the next couple of days.

Gas pains.: You might be getting gas in your stomach if you eat too fast and when you burp, the pain is relieved. There is no nerve endings to the stomach or the gut so the only things that make it hurt is distention by gas tumor or fecal material. Sometimes, anxiety causes one to hyperventilate unknowingly and causes gas to accumulate in the gut. ...Read more

I am a healthy 40 y/o woman. Have had my gallbladder removed a few years ago. I have lots of burping and pain in upper abdomen/through my back area. Even in shoulder. Sometimes hurts to bend forward. Any ideas?

Many possibilities: If the burping and upper abdominal pain occur with fatty foods, it may be because of lack of a gallbladder. Sharp pains into the back suggest possibility of stones in the common bile duct, or pancreatitis, or ulcer in the duodenum. If this persists an exam and additional testing may be needed. ...Read more

Dysphagia: Many things can cause dysphagia, or the sensation offood sticking, but the most likely in your case is acid reflux which is out of control. I would recommend that you go to your doctor or to a gastroenterologist. In the meantime, try taking omeprazole 20 mg once each morning about 20 minutes before food. Do this for no longer than two weeks. Even if you improve, see your doctor. Good luck. ...Read more

Severe reflux: You seem to be using multiple medications for a problem that may need more expert attention, and I have no idea how long or how severe your problem is. The first way to approach severe GE reflux is to see a GI specialist. You probably need a diagnostic study or two to find out why your body rejects anti-reflux meds and then go from there. Any treatment will involve a change of dietary habits ...Read more

I've noticed after I eat greasy foods my stomach starts to hurt and I start getting gas, and start belching. Why is that?

I've noticed after I eat greasy foods my stomach starts to hurt and I start getting gas, and start belching. Why is that?

See below: Belching is the act of expelling air from the stomach through the mouth. It usually occurs when the stomach distends, or expands because of too much swallowed air. Belching releases the air to reduce the distention. You can also have a gas buildup in the stomach from bacteria working on food, which give up for gas. Anxiety can cause just about any physical symptom but it would be uncommon for anxiety to cause excessive belching. If your anxiety includes hyperventilating then that would be a good source of swallowed air, which then could lead to belching.

Some things that may help in belching. Tried to be aware of how much air swallowing. Try to chew food completely before swallowing it so that the stomach will have smaller particles for the bacteria to give off gas with. Excessive exercise can also lead to belching. And sometimes relief can be obtained with anti-acids; H2 blockers and proton pump inhibitors. ...Read more
