I drink plain water and start burping uncontrollably for 15-20 minutes.
The burps just come out. Supervisor said co-workers complain about the burping.

Hello XXXXX! Thanks for putting your query in XXXXXXX I am a Gastroenterologist (DM).

Burping usually occurs because food stay for a longer period of time then usual and bacteria present over there try to digest them and produce a foul smell gas which comes out during burps

Main causes of burping are Acid peptic disease, Gastroesophageal disease, Dyspepsia and decreased gastric motility

What you all have to do is:
1. Do regular aerobic exercise at least 30 minutes / day
2. If you are obese or overweight then you should reduce your weight again by exercise and low caloric diet
3. Wear loose clothes
4.Observe when you take milk or milk products whether these symptoms worsen, if yes then please avoid them
5. Avoid carbonated drinks, wine or beer
6.Avoid smoking
7. take black tea and add cardamom and ginger to it and take them with meals
8. Don't forget to close mouth while chewing food
9.Eat slowly
10. Take a proton pump inhibitor along with a prokinetic agent
11. Take Tablets that contain enzymes protease, amylase, lipase with meals

I hope I have answered your query and this will help you. Remain in touch and get-well soon.
