Uncontrollable Burping and Belching

Posted by jammins @jammins, Dec 8, 2018

Anyone experiencing uncontrollable burping and/or belching? This seem to be a rear condition that no GI exam air specialist has been able to find a cause and subsequently a solution. Any help from someone with the experience would be greatly appreciated.

@drpepper

Somedays it takes hours to get relief from gas-ongoing belching, etc. I have tried various ways to speed the process (need to stop belching before a dental appt. etc) with limited success– lying on my stomach, hand pressure on stomach, bending toward feet, riding exercise bike, etc. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

Did you have a HIDA scan? I am having the same type of problem with belching. My HIDA scan EF was 83% and told it was normal. Not so according to the studies I've read. I have been and am being treated for borderline SIBO. At this time, it's only the methane type. But diet, supplements, drugs don't change my problem much. Trying to get a referral to Mayo. I think it could be my gallbladder. If you haven't had a HIDA scan, see if your doc will give you one. Then get a copy of the results. From what I've read, too high or low can be a problem.

@jammins I deep wet belch over 3000 x a day & night . Constantly churning gut , so loud it wakes me up . The burps always taste the same . Like sewer water . I’ve had every test you can do done ✅ and everything holistic done ✅ last 7.5 years. This has ruined most all of my 50’s . I’ve gone to 5 Gastro Dr’s . Sure I have Gastritis , Class B GERD , Small Hiatal hernia , Esphogitis. That’s what tests have said . I’ve tried all the PPI ‘s they make . Everything OTC and herbal and pre and pro biotic . No one can tell me why , I can’t eat anything ( and I eat so clean ) without suffering every single time .
I’m now on antidepressant and anti anxiety meds because this has gotten to me mentally. I can’t even enjoy a dinner out w/ my husband. I’m sick all the time .
I have televisit consult w/ Cleveland Clinic Young Gastro Dr end of July . Most Drs say I’m a medical mystery and they can’t do anything for it . I live on Ultra Pepto daily .
I’ve been on waitlist for Mayo Clinic Jacksonville for 9 weeks . I doubt they will call me . Since you posted this in 2018 , what’s happened to you since ? Who did you see and did you get the answers and diagnosis and treatment. I’d love to know if you can share w/ me . Desperate here , Thanks , Rosemary

@dfulwyler Good luck getting into Mayo Jacksonville, even with referral. I’m on waitlist 9 weeks. I was going to HIDA scan but I can’t lay down the 3 hours for it ( still) w/o belching deep for all that time . You must lay still they said or test is void . I get anxiety laying down too long w/o being able to move anyway.
So are you going to see a Surgeon and get Gallbladder removed ? I wish I could do that and all these 3000 belches a day / night w/ non stop churning gut would finally go away after 7.5 long hard years .
I wish you luck w/ it .
If they could knock me out for the scan , I’d do it , they won’t .
So after a dozen other tests through years , I’m still in same spot. 🙁

So @rozy288 , you are still waiting on Mayo? Did they offer you the wait list or did you keep calling and asked for it?

Still on waitlist for Mayo Clinic Jacksonville 9 weeks . In the meantime I made an appointment with Cleveland clinic in Weston Florida for Televisit on July 27. I didn’t know I was on the waitlist till three weeks and then I called and they told me, and I’ve called two times since. The only way you can get in there is if you are critical or someone cancels.

I know it rakes an extremely long time to get into Mayo. I'm still working on the referral. I can't imagine how long you've had to suffer. Unfortunately, docs here in Tri-cities aren't good at diagnosing anything out of the ordinary even with the test results screaming at them. So frustrating! But they're ready to give you antidepressants at the drop of a hat!

@dfulwyler so you didn’t see surgeon about gallbladder surgery? You holding off on that ? Do you live in FLA ? I’m 3 hrs south of Mayo Clinic Jacksonville . I hear they both ( Cle Clinic, Weston) and Mayo make you redo all the tests again , even if you recently had them done . My gosh the deductible plus 20 percent on all this tests will be so much $$$$ . I’m kind of scared of that . It’s like your left to suffer or you go broke trying to figure out what’s wrong 😑 and how to fix it ! How much do you burp a day ( I’m in 2000-3000 range). If my gut is empty or digesting food ,. It’s always churning and the belches are huge and wet but not acid @jammins what are yours like ? Have you figured out what it was and does it still happen since 2018 @jammins ? Thanks Rosemary

@rozy288 I am sorry to hear about your symptoms and being on the waitlist for Mayo. In a world where almost everything is instantaneous now a-days, it's difficult to wait when you are suffering. I do know that both Mayo Clinic and Cleveland are complex care centers and are usually the places people turn to when they have exhausted all other options and are desperately seeking answers. I think the reason for duplicate testing is to ensure other facilities didn't miss something. It's more of a testament to Mayo's thoroughness to find a solution, rather than an annoyance or burden for their patients.

Have you considered asking one of your physicians for a referral to attempt to expedite the process a little? Besides belching are there other disruptive symptoms taking place?

@amandaburnett My Gastro Dr. did send all records over in May. GUESS WHAT…I got a CALL TODAY from Mayo Clinic in Jax ….I have a televisit appt now (not until Sept 7th) !! I understand they have to re-do the tests. It's just the out of pocket cost is scary as the tests are very expensive even with Health Insurance. Also the cost of lodging when you need to stay there a few days isn't cheap at all. I'm looking into a home on VRBO that is dog friendly close to Clinic. I know so many people have gone there and done all the tests and still don't have answers to their issues. I only know from experience . I'm on 5th or 6th Gastro Dr. , I lived in NC and even went to DUKE. Still they couldn't help me get well. Thanks for input. Besides the 3000 deep wet belching, I have non stop churning going on all the time. MY gut gets so loud esp at night that it wakes me up. I'm up on 3 pillows and a small travel pillow too. Of course I'm tired during day from the horrible nights sleep. I even take something for sleep. I have diag. of GERD, Gastritis , small hiatal hernia, Esophagitis. I live on Ultra Pepto as I've tried a laundry list of RX and Holistic stuff. I eat so clean and small…but everything makes my gut terrible and intestines. I'm praying that this Dr. will be able to actually help heal me so I'm not suffering day and night . I want my life back….this is my last chance . Thanks Rosemary
