I Feel Like I Have To Burp All The Time.

I feel like I have to burp ALL the time. I try to force the burp, but I still feel the same all day. I also have painful hiccups. Could this be acid reflux?

Answer

Hi there, Amy -

I know this is a very old question, but I did want someone from our staff to address it. Did you ever find out what was causing these symptoms? I'm only a layperson and can't diagnose any medical conditions, but it does sound like something that could be related to acid reflux or to a problem with your esophagus. Whenever you have a problem that persists like this, it's always best to see the appropriate doctor (in this case a gastroenterologist) to find out what is causing the problem. Persistent problems with reflux that go untreated can cause bigger problems, so I hope you got this checked out!

If you did get it treated, perhaps you could come back and tell us what the doctors found and how it was treated? It might be helpful to others in our communities.

Here is some information you might find helpful in any case. I hope you're feeling better now!
