Shutting pains and then i start to burp a lot

I have 2 problems but i believe my self they are related. 1. when i want to eat a plate off food i can only manage a quarter of it before i get shuting pains and then i start to burp a lot then have to stop and i will be still hungry but it would hurt if i had any more. 2. when i go to sleep at night i am constantly swallowing my own slarva (spit)my stomach gets full and i wake up burping then i have to throw up (sick) all before i can try to go to sleep again and the pains are really painfull.

Hi... Antacid syrups are good in preventing the burping.. Try those before food... Eat slowly and try to chew properly before swallowing.. Avoid spicy foods, dal and foods that make you feel full like carbonated drinks... Avoid getting to the bed immediately after a meal..  Go for an endoscopy if needed to see if there are any causes in the stomach which is the cause for your symptoms...

The symptoms you have described are suggestive of Acid peptic disease and Gastro esophageal reflux disease. Upper GI endoscopy may confirm the diagnosis. Antacids and acid suppressants may help.

I have pain in my mid/upper back and an ALT of 78 and I have been burping a lot. These symptoms all started recently. Can this be cancer? I am very frightened. I have recently had an X-ray and ultrasound done, but have not heard back from my doctor.

Recent questions on  Belching

Good evening, I had a recent bout of what my GP described as gastro virus. Symptoms were bloating , severe cramping with constant burping and flatulence . No vomiting or diarrhoea. I had feverish feelings but no high temp. This lasted for 4 days and is thankfully almost gone. The day I went to my GP (4th day) I was developing a rash on my face and forehead . I thought it might be the stress of the previous days and nights. My GP didnt have an opinion. This has gotten somewhat worse. It is not itchy but has a burning sensation and very noticeboard. I was wondering if this might be an after effect of my stomach ailment or something else. I have been applying a mild moisturiser with no effect as yet. Thank you for any advice.

Hello, After one night of vomitting 7 times, I began belching after everything I swallow. They are not huge belches, they only release air. It can be water, a taste of something like an almond , a snack, or a meal. I also belch when I get up in the morning and sometimes when I bend over, but rarely inbetween meals. There is no pain. This has continued for 5 months and it has not changed or skipped a swallowing event even once. I have had blood tests, a colonscopy, endoscopy , abdomen ultrasound, and successful treatment for SIBO. Everything is normal. My first gastroenterologist gave up and now my second one wants me to stick a pencil in my mouth (which also did not help) and prescribe a small dose of Nortriptyline , of which I am leary due to the side effects. Do you think something mechanical happened to the esophagus , diaphram, or stomach muscles when I had the original vomitting incident? It seems like my doctors think it is in my head. The latter one thinks I burp on purpose. I have never had anything like this before the vomitting incident. I also have a naturopath treating me for SIBO and leaky gut syndrome, but she has not done any tests for it. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I had stomach pains which felt like gas a week ago. I also had a lot of burping. I ate a lot of raw vegetables that night, along with a lobster roll.I also normally do not eat a lot of wheat gluten . I have had normal bowel movements all week. I have a small bruise in the area where the pains were. It still feels like stitch in that area. My stomach was hard and distended. I also have some pressure when I urinate. It does feel better than before but it is not completely gone. What could it be?

Hi, my name is XXXXXXX and I am 20 years old. For the last year I ve been burping up foam. As of recent it s been worse. I burp foam, have pain right under my ribcage, it feels tender and bloated. I get nauseated when I m about to have a bowel movement , often I find myself dry heaving. I also get cold sweats out of the blue. What could be wrong? A previous physician said it might have something to do with my gallbladder .
