I'm starting to develop a fear of going to bed! For several weeks now, when I lay down to go to sleep, after about 20 minutes, I start burping, burping, burping, and feeling pressure in my epigastric area. I suppose that sounds like reflux......but I'm not sure. I have no heartburn.
Why would that happen? It happens even if I haven't eaten for 5-6 hours. It's like clockwork, 20 minutes after I lay down. Is it possible that every little bubble of gas in my entire GI tract finds it's way up to my stomach???
It may not even be gas. I think when we feel pressure in our epigastric area, we can actually "pretend" to burp, to give us a momentary feeling of decreased pressure........but actually, we're introducing even more gas to our stomach. Who knows. I'm getting so tired of my GI tract. Can I trade it in for a new one???
Anyone else have this "burping-when-supine" problem?? It goes away later in the night......but it's very unpleasant and I'm tired of it.
