    I’m a 29 year old female who has been suffering from excessive burping and flatulence for a few years now. I also suffer from constipation and diarrhoea. Could this be a classic case of IBS? Is it worth visiting a Doctor if it is or should I just try cutting out certain foods to see if that resolves my problem. I’m not really sure what the best course of action is. Please advise.

    Hi I’m 19 years old and have been suffering for the past 8 years. I have been tested for coeliac disease, Gall bladder problems and IBS; however after numerous tests they have all come back negative. My symptoms include extreme tiredness, sickness and nausea, abdominal pains, sore gums, headaches and severe diarrhoea and burping. My doctors have sent me to surgeons and specialists and none of them have helped me, if you have any idea what is wrong with me please comment.

    Have u had a coeliac screening test ie blood test done coz I had them symptoms turned out I had coeliac

    I have been burping consistently for the past couple of months. Last month I was admitted at the hospital after numerous visit to my GP after prescribed medications failed to address the problem. Whilst in hospital various investigations were carried out to diagnose the cause of this condition, including cheat/stomach X-ray and endoscopy. However,thank God I was given all clear as nothing was found that could be the underlining cause. Currently I feel isolated because I can't hold longer communications with my loved ones and it is deeply affecting my social life. I will deeply appreciate all your support/help. Many Thanks

    Sarah, For the record, I have been suffering with this, including some bloating/distension, and allegedly associated with IBS, spastic or lazy colon and other gastric problems for about 2 decades now and it is not getting any better, in fact I would say worse. DESPITE some tests, (gastric emptying, x-ray, barium meal, endoscopy), there appears to be no answer from the medical profession, in fact one senior medical practitioners wrote and suggested I was suffering from MUPS - Medically Unexplained Symptoms, which causes me to challenge the training and knowledge of some in the medical profession. In the meantime I have also been prescribed pills like Lansoprazole and the others without success, pills to encourage food process like Domperidone, Metaclopromide without success. Most of these problems arose after gall bladder removal which, allegedly, was not necessary. Other practitioners suggest in some cases it has something to do with yeast that causes increased fermentation within the system leading to over-production of gas. BUT, no answer how to deal with it!!

    Hi, I'm a 21 year old male. I have had a very strange sensation in the back of my throat now for at least four months. It feels like a lump in the back of my throat, as if theres some sort of obstruction. It doesn't go away even if I drink plenty. It doesn't affect my swallowing when eating or drinking. It is not painful, it is just very uncomfortable from the minute I go to bed till the minute I wake up. There is definitely something there. I have been to several doctors and unfortunately, I don't even get one straight diagnosis, I must have had about four different diagnoses!! I am very worried that this is something serious as time has gone on and its still persisting. My other symtoms include a dry/ mild cough that comes and goes and also burping more often. I would appreciate any advice. Thank you.

    Recently I have been doing the slim fast diet ( 1 milkshake in the morning and lunch diet and a healthy dinner) But, after a few days it was making me feel really sick. So I tried to stick to a healthy balanced diet..but for the last few days my stomach is really hurting and feels bloated and when I press deep it is like sharp pains and I have wind (burping a lot like I have drank several cans of coca cola) although I have just been drinking water... And my last 4 stools have been a deep red/black colour- can any help me? Or shall I report my symptoms to a doctor? Rebecca

    I am 31, This burping problem started for me in 2010 after I got stressed losing money in stock market and ever since the problem remains and it's worse 2 years just gone now and docs have tried everything including gastroscopy (camera down the gut) unfortunately they can't find any answers or solutions. However, I found that the burping seem to stop when I travel abroad. I.e. go outside the UK. In UK I burp out loud on average 20 times in less than 2 mins and when I get seriouse episode I can burp 34 times in 25 seconds. I actually made recordings on my iPhone for doctors to review. But In 2011 I spent 3weeks in Hongkong and Tokyo, no burping what so ever I almost forgotten about this problem but after I return to UK, day 2 in UK burping returned. Now 2012 I spent 3 weeks in China, no burping I have only been back in Uk for 5 days and I have been burping non stop that's why I am looking up Internet for any new info or solution to this strange problem docs don't seem to have an answer. I guess the solution is probably going to differ for each one of us. I will be relocating to the middle east in about 4weeks times for new job and hope to return to UK in about 4years time and if my burping and bloating and stomach pains stops completely, I will report back here. But until then, my fellow citizens, please keep trying all kinds of solutions and may God help us where science has failed us all.

    I had h pylori in October and this was discovered after a trip to Turkey whereby I cam home unwell with sickness and diarreah also constant burping, and loss of appetite. I have never experienced anything like this. I have never been one to burp and alway enjoyed my food. Now as soon as I eat or drink I get a reflux motion with severe burping. The test at the hospital showed no acid reflux but GAS in the gullet. I have been given anti acid tablets all the same and referred to a dietician. Any help would be good

    I too have a burping problem which is really embarrassing as I cant help myself. I know Im burping and I always wonder if people can hear me (and they always can but they say its background noise now because they are so used to it)I have had this for over 6 years now and I do not feel as though I want to go back to my doctors as they dont seem to take me seriously. About 5 years ago I was treated for H.Pylori. I dont drink much dairy or eat a lot of bread,I drink mostly water as I dont particularly like a lot of juices. The problem is especially agrivated after eating a meal which can be uncomfortable. Is there some way of finding the source of the problem as I dont really like gaviscon?

    Hi, I think i have been misdiagnosed and I'm hoping you can help. I have had a problem for just over 3 years now, it started off i used to wake up in the middle of the night burping this awful, revolting eggy smell with unbearable stomach cramps by the morning it would have gone, gradually it became through the day & stopped happing at night, i have tried not having fizzy drinks, certain foods, i cant drink any pure juices for example apple juice as this causes me to have really bad heartburn. I have been back & fourth from my doctor & finally last year i got some tablets called Pantoprazole which he had given me when it first started but only for a few weeks, i have now been on them solid since last December & haven't had anything since. I'm only 19 and it has affected my life in quite a bad way, i don't like drinking Alcohol or going out with my friends as I'm scared it will make it come back either whilst i am out or the next day. I went on holiday last year & went out on a night out, the next day i had the burping with stomach cramps & was vomiting. I have had to take time off from work with it also. i think the tablets are giving me side effects which are drinking constantly, tiredness, dizziness and my weight is up & down. yes the tablets have stopped the burping but i have had to carry on cutting things a lot of things out as every time it was something different that had cause the problem. I have been researching my tablets tonight & the symptoms everyone else is having, i don't have. I would be grateful for any feedback as it is really getting to me... thanks

    I'm only asking a question here as I'm no GP but how does your lifestyle reflect what you eat. Your 19, you should be munching on kebabs from the dubious place down the road after a good night out. From the visits to your GP and I assume from your local hospital you've had an endoscopy to check if there are any issues with your esophagus,duodenum (once again if that how you spell it). Your GP is right to check through items 1 at a time but if the issue persists then a further investigation is required.It'd also help if you could provide him with a daily planner of what you eat on a daily basis so that he/she has diary listing of what your normal day consists of. Remember the more information you can provide to your GP then the better the chance they have to help.

    Hi. I'm 14 years old. 2 weeks ago I experienced and sore throat followed by loosing my voice and sounding " like a man " now the past 3-4 day I've had this weird sensation of having a lump in my throat and burping moves it. I can specifically locate where the lump is in my throat it just feels as if though something's there. Burping moves it and have to re swallow to not feel the lump sensation. I've tried warm cups of tea to try to break my voice when it's hoarse but it doesn't seem to work. My voice goes hoarse when I try to do a high note eg. Screaming or singing. My burps have been increasing and irritates my throat and makes the lump "move" I'm recently on medication but haven't got an allergy to anything in it. Please help???????

    Yes I am going through exactly the same thing, 40mg of omeprazole but It doesnt touch it. I am also waiting on an endoscopy, This is having a real affect on my life as I am sick all the time at work. I have tried a variety of different foods but nothing works. I am constantly burping too.

    I am 14 years old and am constantly bloated. I am always burping or 'belching' but i never have diarroea. It is unpleasant and it is usually worst after i have eaten food. I have been on all the websites and they say i have ibs or bowel cancer. However i do not have all the symptoms. The doctor gave me medicine bit it doesn't work, can anyone help me?

    Hi there i am 25yrs and have suffered the exact same problems as yourself for atleast 10yr. I eventually went to the doctor as I started becoming really embarressed by the problem. I would advise you to go see your doctor as it turned out there was a problem, I cant unfortunatley remember what it was called but I do know that it has something to do with my stomach and a little bug/parasite (i am unsure exactly what it is)that was present in the stomach. It is treatable but it can return as that happened to myself it actually comes and goes regularly now, but i did help by changing my diet slightly as it was very unhealthy when it started and this helps slightly. I hope this has helped.

    I'm 48 and have been suffering for awhile with burping that smells and tastes of eggs. Its intermittant about once a month but sometimes more frequent. Its really embarrassing and i'm afraid to go to the doctors. The only thing that helps is Pepto-Bismol, but i have to take quite a bit. I'm on several medications and i'm diabetic type 2. Please help me i'm really worried.

    Hi I had bad stomach pains about 5 years ago and went to the doctor and he said I have ibs and put me on ibs pills which help. But now I have tight chest that feels like heart burn with itching ,tingling and burping.I went to the doctor and he said my chest was clear I had it 5 weeks now so can any one help.

    Jade, can I just say how interesting it is to hear that someone else has EXACTLY the same situation as myself. I am older than you (24), but like you, after any meal I will have food reflux back into my mouth minutes later. I too have had all the same tests done as yourself, but not conclusion seems to have been found. I would love to hear what your doctor says when your results are in. It is damaging my teeth and can be very arkward to eat with other people around. I wish you luck in finding a solution!

    Hi I am 22 and lately have been suffuring with excessive wind and abdominal pain and bloating.To be honest it been happening a couple of years but only really noticing it now that I have decided to do something about it. It usually happens generally after I eat cheese or dairy products. I find myself burping more then normal after drinkin tea which i think is related to the milk in the tea. I have a feeling that I could be lactose intolerant but not too sure. Any ideas as it can be quite embarrasing and would like to get an idea if I am on the right track??

    Hi I had food testing done and it came out that I was lactose intolerant. You can take a lactose enzyme (from health food shops/dieticians) which can help symptoms. Would suggest having a food intolerance test to diagnose and maybe try removing dairy from your diet to see if that helps. If not go and see your GP and insist they test you for bowel conditions. Good luck
