Constant exaggerated belching after dinner meals
I suffer from constant and exaggerated belching after dinner meals.  The belching can go on for hours; sometimes up to six hours after eating.  The belching is accompanied by pressure  and bloating in the stomach along with a feeling of fullness like the food is still sitting there (even 6 hours after a meal). All of these things are associated with nausea that lasts as long as the above symptoms do.   What sort of conditions could be associated with these symptoms?

Hi,
The most common cause of belching is aerophagia. This occurs when excess air is swallowed while eating or drinking too rapidly. Eating slowly may prevent this. Sometimes excess gas accumulates due to improper digestion or disorders of motility. In these cases a complete evaluation by a gastroenterologist is needed.
