Help, I have loud painful burping and cannot find out what it is

Since March of 2004, I have had painful burping with stomach pain. I was told that I had IBS in 2000, but did not burp the way I have since March 2004. When I go to bed, I have to sit up and burp several times. Then if I wake up to go to bathroom, I'll have to burp. I cannot burp lying down, and the pain will not go away unless I sit up and burp. I have been told that I swallow air and to try these exercises. Did not help. Anyway, I think I may have no digestive enzymes or something like that. I just don't think that is all of it. Is there ANYONE who knows or has heard of this?

Re: Help, I have loud painful burping and cannot find out what it is

I have this as well. It's not as painful as it is forced (and I think I've become used to it being painful/annoying). I went to the doctor, I'm only 24 and really had no reason to have ulcers or stomach cancer or gastritis, and I started with these symptoms while I was on Nexium.

My doctor basically told me to chill out. I am not always sure I believe that stress is what is killing my stomach, but it could very well be true. The only time I am able to control this is when I eat only about 2/3 of what I usually do (I don't eat much to begin with). I always was a healthy eater and drink a lot of water....and a lot of Maalox for when I eat something that gives me indigestion. I don't really have an answer but the more I cut down on food the easier it is for me. Unfortunately it is a really depressing solution.

Hey, thanks for replying.
I haven't checked the board for a while. Anyway, I have a question. Do you feel pressure in your stomach and then feel like you have to force a burp? That is how I feel.
