    Hi im a 28 year old male and i have never been able to burp. Occasionally one tiny burp will slip out but its never intentional. Instead i get these low grumbles in my lower throat area. Sounds like my stomach is rumbling except in my throat. Its made worse by drinking anything carbonated and gassy type foods like mexican. During its worst times it often causes me to dry heave and have great stomach pains

    any ideas??

    Hi Kev,

    I'm thinking on it, too. Have you spoken to your doctor about it?

    Love,
    Patsy.

    Kev

    If you are in Britain you can see a doctor for free on the National Health. My gut feeling (sorry for the pun!) is that it may be connected to your eating habits, especially as it gets worse with carbonated drinks and spicy food.

    Blessings

    Hi Kev,

    Oh yes, gassy drinks and spicy food can be menacing to sensitive tummies like yours. Nothing's worse than to feel like this following eating and drinking these things. I bet you a doctor would tell you to avoid them. Drinking milky drinks usually helps to take away the painful colic that accompanies this type of thing.

    Make sure that you sort out your health insurance as well, just in case you need to see your doctor.

    Nasty!

    Love,
    Patsy.

    RE: Cant Burp

    Sounds like you may have acid reflux and/or hiatus hernia. Your best bet is to definitely see a doctor. You may want to do a search on the forums as I am sure there is some information about this condition.

    RE: Cant Burp

    My Nana gets this - by pure accident i got her to try some Liquid Chlorophyll and she let out this almighty belch, she said the horrible feeling in her stomach completely went. My son also gets these weird gassy burps which wont come out properly, he is drinking liquid chlorophyll too and it seems to be helping though not as apparent as it helped my nana.

    RE: Cant Burp

    i can't burp either and, when it gets too bad, i have to (yuk!) stick my fingers down my throat and then the air comes out! and i have a very healthy diet, no carbonated anything, even water can make me feel like this! i just figured that it's the way i'm made!

    RE: Cant Burp

    I get like that sometimes but normally resort to homeopathy and take Carbo Veg. Usually within 15 mins any trapped gas comes out one way or another. Works very well when I get a now rare (thanks to avoiding soya in all forms) bloat, which makes me look like I am 6 months pregnant.

    RE: Cant Burp

    Hey, I have this problem too. I really noticed it when I starting drinking in high school. During my normal life its not that big of a deal, but when I drink anything carbonated, beer or cola, it gets bad. Sometimes I have thrown up just because of the stomache pressure. I also went to the hospital because of massive stomache pains lasting for a long time. They took an x-ray and said my stomach was inflated because of gas. It was so painful. When i got home the pain didnt go away, until I went into the bathroom and stuck my finger down my throat. That time wasnt cause by drinking either, im not sure why it happened. From what I read before it sounds like a muscle problem. Theres a certain muscle that needs to relax on command in order to burp, and some people just cant do it. Not sure if there is a cure for this, but I would do anything to be able to burp. Please keep this forum going, so we can get as much help as possible.

    RE: Cant Burp


    :)Hi! My name is julie and i'm a 17 year old girl. I will be a senior in high school this year. I'm not sure where to start so first I will list some of my symptoms. If you have any of the same then you can read on to get the details of my breathing problems, how they started, the doctors who can't help, and what medicines, doctors, and tests i've tried.

    [:'(]Symptoms: chest gurgling, gurgling up my esophagus loudly (not the type of stomach growling but it is different and louder and in my chest), feels like my chest fills up with air & I can‘t take a deep breath, when I can’t take a deep breath I can’t talk either, I can’t exhale when this happens I can only inhale small breaths at a time, I get dizzy if I don’t burp right away forced burps with my finger down my throat to burp (doctors say because the oxygen is being cut off from my brain when this happens), forced burps only though (stick my finger down my throat to burp otherwise I can’t let air out of my chest), total relief after I burp like that, only after I do some forced very loud belching/burps can I take a deep breath and feel complete relief until the next time, certain foods make it worse, laying on my back durring an attack brings relief until I sit up (if it was acid reflux then laying on my back would make it worse so its not just that), certain exercises/sports make it worse or trigger it (but sometimes ill be sitting there doing nothing so it's not asthma), inhalers don't help and sometimes make it worse, the gurgling comes sometimes even if I haven’t eaten or exercised all day (sometimes ill just be sitting in class and this loud gurgling comes, very embarrassing for a teenager) the gurgling is much worse after I eat though because of the slight possible acid reflux, the doctors say I do have very slight acid reflux but not enough to be affecting me at all this much so that just makes my problem worse but isn't the root of the problem. They've ruled out pretty much everything in medical history...

    i came to the conclusion that most medicines they gave me were for people with acid reflux who had too much gas and burping. i on the other and don't burp so those just made me worse.


    I have been taken into ambulances or by the paramedics and put on oxygen masks. I got put on oxygen once at a football game for my school during the fall and once at a state fair during the summer. I get these problems every season. The season does not affect my breathing. I get the problems in most environments but it was less in italy, florida, and upstate new york. Good air quality helps my problems but does not cure them at all so I know that is not it. I live in new jersey 10 minutes from nyc so I know that just makes my problems worse.
    I have been to multiple doctors and specialists…estimated 6 family doctors, 2 pulmonary specialists (lungs) , 1 cardiac specialist (heart) , 2 gastro entomologists (digestive system and gas) , and i’ve had many tests like: tested for asthma, upper g I series, a special x-ray that showed my whole chest area where I had to drink this white pasty stuff that showed the doctors my digestive area and esophagus through my chest, ultrasound, the doctors wanted to make sure it wasn’t a vascular ring in my heart, tested for lactose intolerant (which the medicine I tried made me get sick and I love milk so thank god it’s not that), chest x-rays, lung x-rays, anything! You name it and I probably had it done.
    I’ve tried so many medicines that I can’t even begin to name them all and the side affects.

    Medicine when they thought I was lactose intolerant, 3 different inhalers at different times (2 of the inhalers backfired and when I was supposed to use them during an attack they just closed my airway more and made it harder to burp and get the air out & the other inhaler that was to be taken before any activity in the morning did absolutely nothing to help me) nexium gave me side effects of shaking, insomnia, dry mouth, nausea, and shortness of breath w
