Re: constantly feel like burping what is wrong!!!???

OMG, I have the exact same problem and thought I was the only one. This has been going on for years (probably due to different eating disorders that I've gone through in the past). I also always feel like I need to burp but sometimes I just can't. The lump in the throat feeling is starting to be awful - I keep drinking water but nothing's helping. I don't know if your b/f has the same problem, but I seem to be hungry quite often. I'll eat and feel really full, but after about an hour or two, I start to feel like my stomach is completely empty. I hope you've discovered what the problem is by now. I thought this was all in my head for a while, but now I'm seriously considering seeing a doctor soon. Good luck and take care.

I have been having the same problem as all of you for about 5 or 6 months....Have never had a problem or medical problem in my life...but I started a new excercise regime a month b4 I turned 50 and 2 weeks b4 I started having this feeling of needing to burp and when I do it did and does relieve the feeling.....a pain sometimes in the pit of my stomach and when I eat it feels better....I have been to the doc and he has tried it all....I am not sure they know all these new things we are getting...but I feel it may be stress and just our body changes...I cant say I have terrible heartburn or that it happens with certain foods it happens with any food.....I did quit my coffee and stuff like that knowing my digestive system has changed and I am too at wits end if anyone has a suggestion please feel free to suggest...I lost about 20 pounds in the first 2 or three months because I was scared to eat...that was ridiculous but it has stayed off....I am glad to hear also I am not nuts and others do have this same thing ...thank you

Re: constantly feel like burping what is wrong!!!???

I have exactly the same thing. Lump in throat which feels like a lump of catarrh and then I do burp but that only relieves it for seconds then it comes back. Eating is the only thing that helps but I can't do that all day! When I described it to my gp in July he said it was acid reflux and gave me nexium. They worked on burning in stomach but the lump remained and is still here now. Does it get worse as the day goes on?

I was told the lump in the throat feeling is actually acid reflux and to take a antacid for that. It could also be made worse when you get stressed out about it. The more I would think about it, the worse it seemed.

As for the burping feeling, that is a new symptom I have taken on more recently. I feel as if I have to burp but it gets stuck. Once I do burp I feel a lot better. I also get a lot of rib pain which I was told was gas, but I have a feeling the rib pain and the burping feeling is all part of an acid reflux problem.

hi hortibabe, Mine has not gotten worse at all...infact on days I do not eat alot I feel better but ahve the hungry feeling....my doc has given me many things for it but I am finding out on my own that the ph acid in the stomach can do this and if you look in search for digestive problems it shows the use of aloe vera juice for digestive problems....I was given previcid and it just gave me stomach pains.....the food we eat anymore has alot of acid in it and we may be experiencing an acid stomach but I am only guessing as you are....just check out the digestive disorders.....I have also been doing barley green and I believe that has helped mine not get worse...Let me know what you think about the aloe vera...I went and bought some today and will start it tomorrow and also check out the Limu moui site......very interesting......doctors continue prescribing these antacids and stuff for gerd but it is not helping people because we need to get to the root of the problem and I do believe from the proccesssed foods we eat we are creating our own problems...what do you think....? d

Re: constantly feel like burping what is wrong!!!???

Hi,
I agree about the food we eat these days. I started on a low fat, healthy diet in October 2002, I am a vegetarian anyway and had no stomach problems before. My partner had a heart attack hence the diet. Anyway all my problems started after this, about 6 months after. I don't know if there's a connection or not. I take aloe vera tablets but have to admit not on a regular basis, haven't noticed any great change but do you think the juice would be better. The lump in my throat gets better when I have a glass of wine or two! I think this is because it relaxes me and the lump is a stress or anxiety thing, not sure what do you think?

Hi Horti,
I did answer this a few days back from my own email I guess it never got to you or posted here....Yes I helped when I drank a beer or a drink too and or had a cigarette of which I quit about the time all of this started....but Anxiety if that is what it is....can be a sign of Vitamin B12 defiecency too....I went and got me some sublingual B12 and when you do a search on the B12 and see what it causes in deficiency it appears most of my or some of my symptons are there.......and I am 50 too and the older we get the less our bodies can produce the B12...just do a search for it and see what you think and let me know.....Later, D

Hey Horti,
I reread your post and I saw you are Vegan.....Check out the B12 I believe that is some of your problem......Those who are older (over 50) and are vegan have a problem with this ..........older people cant absorb as much anymore therefore should take a supplement and vegans dont eat the animal products that have the Vitamin B12 in them......Hope this helps let me know....Later, d

Re: constantly feel like burping what is wrong!!!???

Hello to all,
Everyone who is suffering from the "something stuck in the throat feeling" and burp feeling and relieved when done need to consider that you are probably being given measures for "high stomach acidity" which has the same symptons as "low stomach acidity" and in the past physicians had to take alot of time to verify that diagnosis and therefore very rarely consider it....In our day and age we all use antacids which lower the acid in our stomachs more and with age it is naturally lower.....I found this out on the internet searching for the Low acid stomach and then confirmed with a specialist who suggested a product which i can not name on the board so call your local health food store and ask for the remedy they use for LOW ACID Stomachs and see if it helps you...I have taken one this a.m. and thus far the stuck in the throat feeling is not as bad..but i have only taken one and feel it will need a few days to straighten my system out....when we have the low acid stomach your system does not absorb any minerals and nutrients therefore alot of other aches and pains and problems occur....so just FYI do a search when all else has failed and there is always an allergy thought to foods you have always ate and your body changes every so many years....so just some ideas for you.....Good luck.....grannyd

Re: constantly feel like burping what is wrong!!!???

Ugh, I have this too. I'm burping constantly...and I always feel hungry. If I eat, it relieves it temporarily...but an hour or two later, my stomach starts burning and feels like it's eating itself, literally! I stopped drinking alcohol, and acidic juices, etc. All I drink is water, and green tea every now and then, but I find that I'm STILL burping all the time .

Re: constantly feel like burping what is wrong!!!???

Does anyone know what this is? i'm suffering from the same thing, always feeling like i need to burp (from the stomach though, not so much a lump in the throat), and constantly hungry.

I started to notice the burping a few months back when I was particularly hungry, but now it's happening all the time. Anyone find out what the problem is??
