    Hi anne81411

    Bloating and belching is usually associated with what food you have eaten. Some gods cause gas and bloating such as sprouts, cabbage and broccoli and other foods. Keep a food diary and see what foods cause you to bloat, belch and cause gas. Also, eating too quickly and too much can cause air to enter your digestive system and cause belching. You can buy over the counter meds for bloating and wind called "windeze". speak to the pharmacist for recommendations. Keep a food diary and if your symptoms persist consult you doctor...

      So I was on and off PPI tablets before I got diagnosed because I had reflux for ages. I am on them all the time now.

      I sometimes got this burning feeling when I drank hot drinks as they went down, I used to get this when I was much younger when I smoked a lot, but I gave up ages ago. I would also get this uncomfortable feeling a little bit to the right when food went down like there was a lump that food was passing as it went down, I am assuming that is where the inflammation was in my oesophagus. So basically every time I stop the tablets I get the symptoms.

      As for the gastritis and sliding hiatus hernia, I got this feeling like there is a solid swelled up ball, it would sometimes feel really raw and I would get bloated and constipated. It felt like food would stay there for ages. When I finally went to the loo my stomach would feel so raw and I would feel really sick. It sometimes feels like there is a band around my stomach, I think that maybe the h.hernia.

      I sometimes get that pain around my belly button too.
