Help!
I'm a 39 year old female, and have always burped like a college kid at a keg party! But recently it's gotten more and more frequent. I do it several times a day. And, very frequently after eating or drinking! My husband gets annoyed hearing it. I recently have been experiencing back pain. Some shoulder and spine pain. I also get tightness in the chest.

I have had a full cardiac workup, numerous times, due to PVC's. So, ok in that respect. I also work at a desk job for the past two years, where I sit all day and have horrible posture.

Is this a reflux thing? I'm not sure where to start!

Thanks!
Try taking some over the counter Prilosec for a couple of weeks and see if that helps.

Take one pill a day in the morning.

If this helps you you probably have GERD and should go see a Gastrologist.

Best of luck...
Hi...I was wondering if you have any answers on your belching? I'm a 31 year old female and 4 months ago I literally started belching like crazy one day out of the blue. It has been every day since. It's very excessive. It happens on an empty stomach, first thing in the morning, but also significantly worse after eating or drinking ANYTHING. I can't take a sip or bite of anything without triggering several huge belches. What's so strange is this is completely new for me. All my test results have been normal so far (endoscopy with biopsies, abdominal ultrasound, barium swallow with bowel follow through). I'm actually pretty scared and have convinced myself I have some terrible underlying medical cause. Help!
My burping was attributed to esophageal reflux. I was treated with dexilant as I also lost some inches in my waist? The combination of the two was a cure for me.
Sweet potato...did you have any tests to diagnose your reflux? Did you have any other symptoms other than burping? I've been constantly belching for several months now and can't get any answers. My endoscopy and barium swallow did not show any reflux and I'm wondering if I could still have it? I have no heartburn or acid or anything...just tons if serious belching. It's actually scaring me and I'm worried I'll never find out why it's happening :(
I only had the burping as a symptom and had no tests.
The tightness in the chest could be mild heartburn or reflux. For just the burping, I would try a combination of a pro biotic and digestive enzymes, like Digest Gold. Those two reduced my bloating and burping substantially.

If the chest pain continues, see a GI doctor.
One thing to look into would be your gallbladder. My main symptoms were constant helping for hours on end. I would even wake up three times in the middle of the night and need to burp. I also had severe stomach bloating and indigestion. I had chest tightness and shortness of bresth which the feeling I could not get a full breath. I had an endoscopy and saw a lung specialist and everything was normal. Then I had a hida scan and it turned out my gallbladder was not working. I had my gallbladder out a week and a half ago. The first week was rough but my family and I can already see big improvements. It's worth getting checked out! Also an ultrasound was not able to detect my gallstones because they were so small so go with the hida scan.
I have the opposite problem as you. It feels like I need to burp constantly but can't do it.... Worst feeling in the world because it makes me irritable and restless.
I have a beer and, problem solved.."..until 5 minutes later when It starts to build up again.


Any suggestions, diagnosis?
