Almost 6 years with everyday burping/belching (100 times per day). I've been on PPI's, currently H2 blockers (every day 75 mg, sometimes 150mg per day). I’ve got chronic gastritis and GERD (which is quite ok) and a really small hiatal hernia including IBS (just passing a little bit more gas at the evening).
The main problem that I have is burping/belching especially 10 minutes after eating. If I don't eat for a long time then the burping decreases dramatically but it is still there. The reason why it is the problem is because it gives me heartburn and esophagus pain! I've never had heartburn without the belching.
My belching decreases when I take an antacids, does anybody know why? Not to mention that if I am on everyday PPI therapy the belching is reduced to maybe < 20 times a day. I've noticed that when my stomach acid decreases the belching also decreases.
I doubt that this is due to my Hiatal Hernia, what could be the cause of such thing?
