    Post CAN'T BURP and feel like I will die from it!

    I have searched and read and can't find anything to explain this weird thing I have going on. I had gallbladder removed 20 years ago and had this prior to that.. then it stopped after surgery but now has returned only worse... usually late at nite, ( I am a nite shift worker so I am usually up and eat in late hours) anyway, sometimes I will need to burp and just can't. It feels like my stomach will explode, it gets very distended and hard during these episodes. It feels like if you drank a coke and were unable to burp after... It is horrible and I get very panicky and usually have to walk the floor till the burp finally comes up. Usually takes about an hour.. I have nearly gone to the ER twice. I am not a "belcher" but do usually burp after eating.. but in this case, it's like something has "locked up" and is not functioning properly. This is a horrible feeling... I would prefer pain, and I have had gallstones and kidney stones, so I know about pain. Doc appt next week... in the meantime any info will be greatly appreciated. Pammee

    I was having the same problem. After testing (endoscope) and all that stuff and couldn't find anything the DR put me on what he calls the CADILLAC of ant acids PANTOLOC. It is the only thing that actually works for me. But very expensive---about $2.00 a pill. Maybe you could try GAS-X or OVAL 160 first. They work pretty good too.

    HI, i don't know if you saw my post, i kind of have the same thing. I really just can't burp, it can be so uncomfortable, i have a phobia of vomiting and havent vomited for years (pg) but at the same time, i havent burped either. After I eat a lot i just have to sit there waiting for the bloating to go down because i cannot ever get it out! When you finally do manage to burp how have you brought it on? Please any advice you have would be great because i havent burped for about 15 years! I read somewhere though that if you suck a peppermint when you have trapped wind it can help a lot, it hasn't for me but it may well for you. try altoids. hope it helps star45 xx
