I feel like a disgusting pig.  I used to rarely burp now I have uncontrollable loud burping that can go on for hours and hours.  I also have pains in the weirdest places that when I rub I burp.  They feel like I have pulled a muscle but it is wind trapped inside eg shoulder blades, behind the knees, ankles etc.  Also my stomach swells so bad I look about 7 months pregnant.  I don't suffer from heartburn.  Can someone help.  I feel like a freak and it is getting worse and effecting my life.  On Ranitidine & Losec for GERD

    Hi - it could possibly be a hiatus hernia as you get refferal pain all over the chest area. It is a bit scarey isnt it? I used DGL  got off all the meds eventually and have never felt better and energy has returned. Wouldnt know I had a hiatus hernia now. Can you lose any weiight as shedding 20 kg made an ernormous difference to me and did wonders for BP. You could try to find a Naturapath. I was so bad for a couple of years that drinking water brought on the belching and shocking chest pains. I tthink the DGL has healed my throat and stomach. Best of luck and never give up!

      Yes it is. We get ours from the States as we dont seem to have discovered it yet here in Australia. About 7 cents a pill so its darn cheap. You need 6 a day but absolutely nothing nasty happens if you miss a dose. Also get magnesium oil from the same bunch and use it transdermally on feet. I'm sure we werent getting proper magnesium due to PPI's not allowing absorbsion due to low acid. Its a slippery slope isnt it?

      If you go to the Amazon USA site and for Enzymatic Chewables you will find over 200 comments on their use. I like Amazon as you know there is no way all these replies/reviews could be plants. For us in Australia, Amazon dont send here which is rather weird as we use them all the time for other stuff!

    Charcoal tablets can help with wind and bloating but they can interfere with the working of the other meds that you take. If you look in Health on the Daily Mail website it had an article about charcoal tablets on Monday. 

    I often joke that I have wind/indigestion in my leg etc so you are not alone:-)

      Thank u for saying that Derek.  I feel like Im going insane.  For years I thought I tore tendons in my shoulders from working out then my sister-in-law who is a nurse told me it is common to have wind pain there especially after losing your gall bladder but I get those pains all over my body which I think is weird.  I had a rough night.  Not much sleep and when I woke I thought I pulled a muscle in my bad.  Rubbed some Deep Heat on and I burp.  Had a really rough week with the GERD...burping and bloating...will try the charcoal...thanks

      Mine has been worsened this week after having been prescribed Cipro for an infection.

      I mentioned Charcoal to my doctor a few weeks ago and he was surprised that it is still around. A former doctor in 1970 first precribed it for me.

    I would say maybe the medicine is your problem or possibly gallstones, when I had gallstones I had chronic burping and farting.  It was awful
