So normally I drink cordial and drinks of tea with no sugar. Last week we were and drank lots of fizzy pop now we are home and I have terrible pains in my chest that feels like I need to burp but I cannot.

Do you think this has been caused by the fizzy pop intake and how can I get relief?

    Try Alka seltzer.  I put a life saver Wintergreen in my mouth to make it have less bad taste..

      I was happily taking Enos fruit salts (similar to alka seltzer has sodium bicarbonate ) for inability to burp ( I have GERD) but last visit the gastroenterologist was horrified that people still take this ....apparently its corrosive and its a definite no no .
