Hello and hope you are doing well.

Frequent burping can happen with consumption of excess sugars, indigestion and aerophagia. It could also be due to Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), malabsorbtion, inflammatory bowel diseases and various infections of the colon.

Sometimes anxiety with flatulence can cause this symptom. This could cause back pain also.

Blood tests will help detect infections, besides stool examination which will reveal fat malabsorbtion.  Colonoscopy and flexible sigmoidoscopy are procedures which are used to study the whole colon for infections and inflammations. Bacterial overgrowth is tested with a breath test. Please discuss these issues with your primary care physician when you happen to meet him.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.

Thank you so much. I am booked for an ultrasound to rule out gallstones/inflammation. My bloods apparently came back normal. Will keep you posted. Thanks again

Hello and hope you are doing well.

As you wait for your tests, try to include yogurt in your diet as it is a probiotic which replaces lactobacillus acidophillus (good bacteria) that helps with digestion. In general avoid all food high in fat and cholesterol. Also avoid all food high in calories and include plenty of high fiber diet. Avoid all fried food, fatty red meat, whole milk dairy products and highly processed food. Include plenty of fresh fruits, high fiber vegetables, whole grains, lean meat and low fat dairy products. This could reduce the severity of your symptoms.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
