I get lot of burps and feeling of choking in throat immediately after eating any kind of food even a small amount.It lasts for an hour and I'm fine later.I guess due to extra effort i put in burping, my ears are ringing sometime.It feels very unpleasant and not able to concentrate on work at that time. Pls help me

Hi and thanks for contacting XXXXXXX
Burping after food may be due to -
1) Bringing out swallowed air also called as aerophagia
2) A voluntary effort at releiving an XXXXXXX discomfort
Both of these are part of supradiaphragmatic burping
3) A decrease in gastric compliance and a laxity of lower esophageal sphincter leading to burping
The choking sensation in the throat may be due to a bad reflux or a web in the esophagus
Considering both together it is probably a bad gastroesophageal reflux that is troubling you. Some ear diaturbances can also occur with throat problems as well as with vigorous vomiting
I would suggest you to take food atleast 2 hrs before retiring to bed, have the head end of the bed elevated by 10cms and do some deep breathing exercises like alom vilom. you can get in contact with a GP and get a prescription for a PPI and prokinetic
