As the title suggests, can frequent burping or a vigorous burp cause severe pain in the throat when swallowing?
I've been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and CFS/ME, and to accompany those I tend to get a lot of digestive issues, which are under investigation as suspected Crohn's Disease. The digestive issues are many nausea, bloating, burping and IBS C and D symptoms.
Anyway, yesterday I woke up and had a gnawing pain in my right shoulder and in the centre of my chest, on top of that I developed one of my burping episodes. It wasn't until just after lunch, when I produced a quite large and what's best described as a rattle type burp that came out with some urgency and force. Since then I have gradually developed a severe pain in my throat, close to the left side of my adam's apple. The pain is aggravated by movement, coughing, burping and swallowing, otherwise it doesn't hurt. It also feels like there is a lump there. Breathing seems to fine through nostrils, but a bit wheezy through my mouth. No other symptoms to report either.
Given the fact that it seems like the pain came on after a burp, do you think the strength and urgency of the burp has perhaps done some physical damage in my throat or could it be something else?
Any views and comments about this would be greatly appreciated.
