hello friend..
according to the symptoms you described, you are suffering from gastroesophagial reflux disease.
first of all you should stop smoking and drinking alcohol, if you have habit.
decrease frequency of tea/coffy.
you start sleeping with head up position.
in medication you can start combination of pantoprazole with prokinetic after advice of your doctor.

I keep burping and its really uncomfortable. I have not eaten much today except for fruit and a falafel pita sandwich. I did take 30 mg xr adderall this morning and also acetaminophen, aspirin, & caffeine pain reliever as well. Is this gas from the medications; what can I do to stop this? I need to sleep!

Hi, I m a 29yr old female, and for the past 3 days I have been feeling nauseous, dizzy, and lightheaded, just today I started burping a lot. I eat fine, but I really havent had an appetite The nauseousness comes and goes, one minute I would feel fine, next I feel like I need to throw up but I don t. I am not pregnant and not taking any medication. The only pills I am taking is othro- tricylen. I ve been on it for about a year now. Yesterday I grabbed my phone out my purse and felt dizzy, I had to hold on to the wall. I also feel like I have hot flashes at times. I had pancreatitis while pregnant with my third child in 07 and had gall bladder surgery in 08. I hope I can get some answers, thank you.

I have recently developed a burping problem and I tend to feel like I am going to vomit in the morning. Furthermore, my nose has been very stuffy since this has started about a month ago and it gets more stuffy the more I burp. It is not acid reflux I have already been seen by a doctor and he gave me a pill that had terrible side effects.

My neighbour is looking after her husband at home. He is 87, has heart problem, alzheimer s, kidneys are not good, has a hernia in his lower abdomen and gall bladder problems. The decision to do anything about the hernia or gall bladder problems is to take no action due age and heart factors. The big problem right now is that he has no desire to eat enough to keep up his strength. He says that he is full and doesn t want anything else to eat. It is difficult to get him to drink enough either and he is on diuertics and getting dehydrated. She has been able to get him to drink most of a Premier protein shake with 30 g of protein that has all kinds of nutrients and part of 19g protein bar. He won t drink water. He doesn t have a swallowing problem. However, I m told that high protein can have a negative impact on the kidneys. Is 30g too high? What about 19g. What can she do? He s getting too weak to get up on his own, and their doctor hasn t been helpful. Oh, and his medications are Toloxin .125 1 tab, Novo-Semide 40 mg 1 tabdepearman, Novo Metoproprol 50 mg 1/2 in AM and 1/2 in EVE, Pantoprazole 40 mg 1 tab, Novo Traziodome 50 mg 1 tab, Mylan Warfarin 1 mg 1 tab, Coversyl 2 mg 1 tab.
