Constant burping pain or heartburn

Posted , 19 users are following.

I have been taking nexium for the past two weeks to relieve constant burping. I took some weight loss meds that i have since discontinued on the doctor's advice and i had vomited that particular day and suddenly i was burping all the time.

I do not believe the nexium is working doctor says i need to take it for as little while longer.....Has anyone ever had constant burping like this ?  Will i ever go back to normal? What can i do/take to stop this? It is driving me insane - like seriously . Could tking those pills for one day really cause this or the vomiting? I welcome ur help/advice..Thank : )

    Hi Sara - sorry to hear about the annoying burping. I had a similar situation with burping and plenty of gas. I've had several endoscpies along the way and diagnosed with Barrett's Esophagus, or better known as GERD or acid reflux. Barretts can be serious as the acids from the stomach can eventually cause esophogeal cancer. Therefore, it's important to keep the gas to the lowest possible level. 

    Anyway, to answer your question, the only medication that helped me substantially was a med called PANTRAPAZOLE -40 MGS.. Now, no two people are alike and what may work for me, may not work for you, etc, but that's my story. One pill in the morning and there's no belching or gas for 24 hours. Of course a sensible diet helps too, staying away from the fatty foods and spicy sauces, etc. 

    I hope you find relief in your burping. I know how annoying it can be. Mine would coe and go and when it was in rare form, it was a nightmare.

    Take care,

    If there is no acid reflux and burping it can be gastritis or stomach ulcers.

    Please go for an endoscopy.

      I wanted to share this with you. I having excessive belching and breathing difficulty. I noticed that after I force myself to burp, more aire immediately moves into place. My problem was caused from mold exposure. After a year or so of multiple exposures, I started belching. When it is bad, I belch up to 3 hours constantly. When it isn't bad, I belch throughout the day but not as much. It's still uncomfortable. Because I was exposed to mold, my lung movement became impaired. This felt like if I had taken a deep breath and held it in and could not relax my lungs to push the air out. In other words, my lungs were stuck in an over inflated /expanded position all of the time. When I have air in my stomach (bloated), I can feel the air pushing upward on my diaphragm preventing the diaphragm from downward movement when breathing in. The bloating pushes up on my diaphragm and my lungs have less room to expand. A CT scan confirmed that my lungs were over expanded. My lungs are a little better now, but not fully recovered as is evidenced by my impaired lung movement when I am bloated. After I intentionally burp, I can breathe easier.  I find that when I lied down I breath the easiest. I believe this is because the air is pushing against the inside of my abdomen, not diaphragm.

      Hi levin,

      I have these very same symptoms. How did you find out and confirm the mold exposure and symptoms were connected to that.  I am concerned that this may be my situation.  And lastly, what did you do to treat your symptoms and your body for the mold exposure.?.? Thanks in advance.

    You should not take tension. Peptic ulcer takes time to heal. It's not a day or two days procedure.

    Patience is the key....
