Over the years if I ate certain things like really greasy things / a good burger off the grill / gravy / greasy soup broth / or certain citrus I would get this terrible gas and I would keep making these croaking sounds as bits of it come up. Life was easy for years just avoiding the really greasy stuff.
However, lately I noted an increase in having these episodes after eating things I eat all the time, which are greasy but never bothered me before. Now, almost everyday I have the problem. I eliminated all soda and I try to eat better. But now I am again suffering with the full sensation.
NOTE: I have never been able to fully burp properly so its hard when I can't get the gas out. I just keep making these croaking sounds as I try to burp it out. How can I make myself burp? Why can't I eat like before? GasX only works a little. I do have GERD/take Prilosec daily/for last 5 years. Its so hard to watch everything I eat, as grease is in many things, even chicken soup or cupcakes. The problem can keep me up but is all gone like it never happened in the morning. I tried ice cream and milkshakes which seem to be okay. But, other times there is a bit of a problem.
QUESTION: Can this just be the GERD getting worse? It does not feel like acid burn, so does GERD cause gas?
