I burp all the time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Some days more than others. At times I burp so much that my neck gets sore around my collar bone. I guess its all part of this thing.
I think it definitely causes gas...
I burp all the time from it...but my primary doctor says that burping is not from it. She's WRONG
I never realized that I was supposed to stay away from apples. That could explain why I have never gotten better!!! Peaches and plums are terrible for me too! What fruits can I eat?? Just watermelon?? The gastro who did my PH testing just told me that the burping is a behavioral issue.
ANd...i KNEW he was wrong!!! It is indeed a GI problem!! Because it is clear that I have low PH!! He told me that i have vigorous reflux. I am NOT swallowing air, I never had this burping problem before having a GI problem...AND, I do not know how to burp on purpose!!
Sorry, I just had to vent!!!
TroubledTummy, watermelon bothers you too?
I've been eating watermelon because I thought that it is alkaline and that it is supposed to be ok...I have terrible LPR, especially today, because the people upstairs are so noisy that I cannot sleep.
CathyA, you actually made me laugh (re. "burping olympics"):) I totally know what you mean...
I did a PH study and my burping was off the charts. The doctor who did the test called it "aerophagia," or something similar to that. That is when you are simply swallowing air and it can be caused by gum chewing, sipping from a straw, or excessive anxiety...Anyway, so I believe that HE WAS WRONG in saying that I have that condition.
I bloat up the wazoo (it even makes my ribs hurt and makes me feel like I'm going to burst). This is called "gastric distention." I also have "esophageal distention." Both of these conditions were found from my PH study and manometry, and were recorded. I have a whole lot of trapped air. It causes me to burp.
Have you guys tried gas-x? Or charcoal tablets? Charcoal tablets are natural and they work really well from some people. Nothing works for me, unfortunately. :(
Halls, you're very very lucky that gas-x works for you.NOTHING works for me. The doctors keep giving me reports saying that my digestion is a mess. but they do nothing to help me.
and i am bloating so terribly now that i feel that i'm going to burst. i think i'm going to the ER now.
