Hi Indersonu, Thank you for the advice. My primary doctor has already sent me to see the gastrointerologist.  The specialist performed an endoscopy and a colonoscopy and both tests came back normal.  I had these procedures performed several times and the results were still the same. The gastrointerologist then put me on prilosec and it didn't help. I've also taken all kinds of antiacid medications over the counter and also still no positive results.  I try to be careful with the type of foods that i consume.  I make sure that they don't cause gas.  However even if i have a drink of water I'm still burping for hours before i see some relief.  I go to the doctors yet they don't seem to know what's really going on. I usually get a lame response from them indicating that oh burping is normal don't worry they tell me.  Well they are not living with this uncomfortable situation. PLEASE IF THERE IS ANYONE OUT THERE WITH A SIMILIAR PROBLEM PLEASE WRITE BACK. THANK YOU.

Anyone who has GERD/extreme Heartburn probaly has had some belching problems. I can tell when a burp I have is "healty" and "not healty." I can't say why exactly, but I can tell. The unhealthy is usually forced and less under my control. Thalia I would look into some healthy natural products to address your underlying problem. Not knowing exactly what that "underlying problem" is makes so you will probably have to try some things for a while and do a trial and error run. Look at the other posts on this board.

For me I take Enzymes to help digest my food, Acidopholus (probiotic) and Candide control products to help with the control of the intestine "good" bacteria and DGL and Aloe Vera in helping heal any damage to my esophogus and stomach due to acid reflux.

I burp tons, too.  It doesn't matter if I've eaten or not.  I can burp up a storm when I wake up.  I just had the Bravo test last week,  and one of the buttons I was to push was when I regurged,  or burped.  So obviously it means something.  I even asked them if an 'empty' burp counted (no food coming up) and they said definately count that also.

I burp all of the time....It doesn't matter if I have eaten anything or not.  Sometimes I burp with an empty stomach, like when I first wake up in the morning.  I notice that I really burp alot when I am stressed or having an anxiety attack, which I do alot because of my stomach issues.  I am going to a new doctor on 4/30 so I hope he can help me!  This is a weird disease!!!

It is a weird disease, and burping sucks. What's even worse is when you CANNOT burp. Now that's bad. That's why I mentioned the simethicone. It should help you have "productive" burps to get rid of the gas, in theory.

I've read a lot about swallowing air in the past. Some people do it when they eat too quickly, and for some reason drinking with straws supposedly makes it worse. I have no idea why that would be.

My GERD has lessened in severity recently but I still go through times where I burp a lot or can't burp and need to. Never really found an answer for it. I do know it's worse when I eat quickly, so eating slowly and trying some simethicone is the only advice I can give you, unfortunately.
