I have IBS also........whatever that is! I have Fibromyalgia too........whatever that is!
about a year ago, I started taking calcium, and it helped alot with bloating, for some reason.
Today, out of the blue, I filled up with air and thought I would explode. I burped and burped and burped. The only thing I can think of is that I took a decongestant. Or.....I'm coming off my beta blocker. Neither possibility makes any sense to me. I guess we have to look at what we ate....but for me, it wasn't anything out of the ordinary. Sometimes, I think it's a matter of biochemistry or neurochemistry or something, which can't always control.
Sometimes, I think when we burp alot, we actually are swallowing the air and burping it back up, which makes us FEEL like we're relieving the pressure.....but we're not. It's sort of an illusion.
Sometimes it helps me to take Gas X during these episodes. Wish I had more help for you.
I think it's real possible that the antibiotic did a real number on you.....so eat yogurt and take probiotics, and cut your carbs down. Maybe even eat very little for a day or 2. Good luck. I know how miserable this can make you!
What about people who have IBS-D?? I'm on Heather's Diet for IBS which is a WHOLE LOTTA carbs!! I eat tons of bagels, flour tortillas, mostly soluble fiber foods. I have control of the IBS now but my GERD is still kinda bad. I have been on Nexium for 4 months and it has helped alot but I'm still having symptoms......I also have a hiatal hernia. The doctor tells me that's why I'm still having problems. If I eat a lot of protein and veggies my IBS seems to be out of control, which upsets my reflux as well. I'm on Primal Defense and Activia for Probiotics and that has helped alot, too! But, like Saltine Crackers really set off my reflux. The salt on the top of the crackers literally burns my throat, especially THIS morning.
I just joined this forum to search for clues about my chronic burping. I had my gall bladder removed a year ago and have been burping many times a day ever since. Before it was removed I also had some burping during gall bladder attacks. I have continuing burping symptoms and sometimes a little gas pressure in my chest. My doctors are telling me to watch my diet, but that doesn't seem to be helping, although coffee does seem to trigger increased burping. Anti-gas, antacid treatments, and motility drugs have not helped. I also had urgent stools after the gall bladder was out, but the Questran seems to have bound up the excess bile acid in my intestines OK. Some doctors have suggested I am swallowing air but I don't think so.
Any ideas or help would be appreciated.
