What causes burning in stomach while yawning?

I am a 31 yr old female. I have ptsd, I take 100mg of Zoloft every day. I am a cigarette smoker. I am 5 4 & weigh 154lbs. I have not had a period in over a year. I am not on birth control. I have had a tubal ligation. That was 7 yrs ago. Now that I have that info up there I will ask my question. When I yawn my stomach burns real bad. What could cause this?

It sounds like you might have some mild dyspepsia, or acid reflux. This is very common, and is more common in people with:

Obesity
Bulging of top of stomach up into the diaphragm (hiatal hernia)
Pregnancy
Smoking
Dry mouth
Asthma
Diabetes
Delayed stomach emptying
Connective tissue disorders, such as scleroderma

However acid reflux is also common in people without any of these risk factors. My best advice to you would be to stop smoking and try an antacid like tums when you feel the burning. If tums doesn't work, you could try Famotidine or Ranitidine (can pick it up over-the-counter at your local pharmacy).
