opnwhl...thanks for responding again.
i'm just having a hard time understanding what is happening to me, and worrying way too much that this is something serious underlying causing this. for some reason my current GI has never even mentioned reflux. he keeps saying it's a "functional" issue now that we've ruled things out with endoscopy, etc. but i just keep thinking something isn't working properly. it doesn't make sense where all this air is coming from? or why i can't take a sip of something without burping a minute later? does this sound like reflux?
can the LES be weak enough to let all the air up but no acid or regurgitation?
i'm really scared. should i even be this worried? it just concerns me that the first day this happened (out of nowhere) i also felt queasy...and the belching has persisted every single day for over 3 months now...even first thing in the morning without eating :(
i just don't know what to be thinking...
