Help!!! I can't burp.
 
I know this thread sounds like a joke but I'm very serious. For my whole life I've never been able to belch. I can only belch when I throw up. Everyday I start the day off feeling fine and by the end of the day I'm a bloated mess.

When I was younger I could tolerate it better but now in my thirties it's starting to wreak havoc on my digestive tract. If I have a carbonated beverage I just gurgle. You know that little gurgle sound you make right before you burp? Mine just retreats. I've tried. Has anyone else had any experience with this?

I've never mentioned it to a doctor because its just been a part of my life. Now I'm wondering if I need to do something.

My BIL cant burp either. He's burped once in his life about 15 years ago. We declared it his "burp-day!"

I have a hard time burping. Try have someone pat you on the back, just like you do a baby. It works on me

One time I had a stomach infection and my middle was bloated and huge. It sounded like a drum when you hit my abdomen. The doctor told me to drink ginger ale, and try to include swallows of air while drinking.

That helped me. I burped all night, but it relieved the gas buildup in my stomach.

:cutie:

I wish it were that simple. If I drank ginger ale and purposely swallowed air I think my stomach would tear. I can't let it out. No amount of neck twisting or jaw stretching helps.

Did you ask your mother if you were able to burp as a baby? Sounds like you need to see a GI specialist.

Can you force the burps in that direction and get your relief that way?

It could be a problem with the sphincter between your esophagus and your stomache. You should mention it to your doctor, especially since you feel bloated and uncomfortable.

Yeah I'm kind of thinking that could be the problem. I guess I'm hoping someone will just magically be on here and tell me they had the same thing and got it fixed. I know that's a fat chance but there's nothing like talking about burps and farts with fellow disney lovers. :)
