Definition Belching is the act of bringing up air from the stomach. It produces a characteristic (typical) sound. Alternative Names Burping; Eructation; Gas - belching Considerations Belching is most often a normal process. The purpose of belching is to release air from the stomach. Every time you swallow, you also swallow air, along with fluid or food. As the air builds up in the upper stomach, it causes stretching of the stomach that triggers the lower esophageal sphincter muscle to relax. This lets air escape up the esophagus and out the mouth. Excessive or repeated belching may be caused by unconsciously swallowing air (aerophagia). Depending on the cause, belching may change in duration and intensity. Symptoms such as nausea, dyspepsia , and heartburn may be relieved by belching. Common Causes Pressure caused by the unconscious swallowing of air Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)

Some gas gets into people's digestive tracts after they swallow it from the surrounding air. But some gas is there because bacteria in the colon produce it after munching on undigested material.
Some people may find gas in their digestive tract to be particularly uncomfortable . This is called bloating . Gas discomfort is a common symptom that in most cases doesn't point to a serious problem. But if gas is causing you serious pain or it's been uncomfortable for more than two weeks, bring it to your doctor's attention. Also make an appointment with your doctor if you also have other symptoms that could be related, such as weight loss.
