lot of burping

My story is a big one.Iam really sorry for writing so much, but to explain what I have been facing since 2 years I had to write down all my symptoms and pain factors. I need help ..... Please help......

I have lot of gas problem since 2 years. I used the PPIs in 2009 and felt better and stopped latter in 2010 as doctor
suggested .My symptoms got worse again since 2011 jan.

I burp/belch a lot but do not have a heartburn. My gas problem becomes worst during my menstural cycle days and no medicine works during those days. It starts 4 to 5 days before my menstural cycle and will last till the second day after my cycle starts. I use gasex and stomach ease tea (with licorice)  when I have lot of gas. I got severe headache when the gas is more and nothing works till all the gas goes out through burping. After all the gas goes away by burping and I take a tylenol then only the headache goes.By that time my throat and stomach hurts a lot burping. This was the case in 2009,but since sep 2010 it has been a daily problem.

I started burping daily even when I avoid all the NO food list. Burping gets worse after my meal. I used to take Chammomile tea every day after meals but did not feel better. In june 2011 I visited a gastroenterologist . I had an upper endoscopy and it was normal did not have ulcers ,gastrisitis or heital hernia . But doctor said LES is wide open and its a motility
disorder and he would not be able to do anything about it. My biopsy report was normal and even my blood test was normal . ( thyroid and harmone levels and bacteria test)

I was told to go and see Cleveland Motility clinic if I wish. I did not understand what to do, the doctor prescribed protonix which I did not want to use because it was very dificult to get a  appointment and no body to assist if something becomes worse again.  Even I have used these PPI's last year so did not want to start a new one again.

I lost weight and now Iam too weak to do my work. I get dizziness and not able to move normally. I do not know what else to eat as I avoided most of the foods.I started "One a day for Women" (without iron) multivitamins for recovery of my health,but that made my gerd worse and had lot of headache due to the gas and burping.

I went through internet and started DGL since a month and Iam also using calcium,bcomplex and magnesium tablets after meal. I feel a little better after using 3 DGL tablets before meals. I now do not burp constantly after meals but I cannot eat most of the foods. DGL only works when Iam too strict on my diet. i eat a little bit of rice for lunch, oats for breakfast without milk. As I dont eat much I feel too weak to move around.My problem still exists during my menstural cycle even after taking DGL.

I tried digestive gold (digestive enzymes) this weekend . I took one to start off before meals. I had eggplant (which i
avoided since many days) but after meals I had lot of burping and dizziness due to accumulated gas.I went on taking gasex and it took a whole day for the symptoms to go off. Not sure if digestive enzymes would work for me.

I tried to test my acid levels at home yesturday by taking apple cider vinegar, but unfortunately my throat started burning .

I had burping through out the day yesturday and did not understand if ACV worked me or not, rather left with sore throat.

I got L-glutamine, Zinc carnosine ,Slippery elm tables from store yesturday and did not start them yet.

To add Iam not working now , Iam a house wife and not under any stress.

I think the last few things can potentially help

It seems your symptoms can be intestinal, have you tried probiotics at all?

I to suffer from burping, I am a guy so dont have issues with menstrual issues'. Anyways, I am also taking DGL and Probiotics, some days I feel bad and some days good.

I can't tell either what is it, but see if you can check for H pylori or Candida or Leaky guy syndrome...Research this...

I still cant tell what I have, I am just speculating.
