Does this sound like reflux ?

Hey just a quick question -
I've never been able to burp and for years I get this retching feeling where I nearly through up but never do but lately the retching is so strong that it's bringing up air and I'm burping uncontrollably and it's really embaressing and I hate it - Does this sound like acid reflux to you ?
Drinking alcohol, fizzy drinks and smoking makes it worse .
any help will be so appreciated

Re: Does this sound like reflux ?

Yes it definately does sound like acid reflux. When my daughter is about to get into an acid reflux issue (and they can get to be very severe) she starts hiccuping a whole lot, lots of burping too. It can go into coughing and panic attacks and emergency room trips - don't let it go there!!

Basically your esopagus is being damaged by the reflux and it's reacting. My daughter now takes one Prevacid tablet every morning before food and the problem is solved.

I'd get to your doctor with these symptoms and fast! You do not want to wait for damage to happen before you go!!
