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.

Hi there,
I have been Burping up Egg Tasting/Smelling Burps since Sunday. On Monday, I felt like I had heaps of wind, was fluffing, and burping all night. This then went away. I have recently started burping again, and it has started to taste like eggs. Is this a sign of early pregnancy?

Hey, Hope you are well. I have excessive belching which smells and tastes of Sulpher. Also black stools, and pain in lower left abdomen (which also radiates through to my back). Can you please advise of the cause of these complaints. I suspect, perhaps, a bleeding ulcer? Grateful Thanks, Davie.
