I am curious, and have read quite a bit on this but want to know more. I am physically unable to burp, except on rare occurrences (probably less than two dozen times in the part of my life I can recollect). Instead, when I eat or drink, I have a lot of pressure in my chest and have some kind of involuntary "inward burp" which sounds a lot like a hiccup. Sometimes they are extremely painful, other times normal. I also have a gurgling that comes up through my esophagus (some compare to an old man grunting). I have quite a bit of heartburn or acid reflux, whatever you want to call it. Almost daily. I know this is going to sound familiar to some...how about to YOU?!
On a different but related note: anyone who has a situation like I described above, what about vom**ing - can't bring myself to type that word because I have emetophobia - look that up, and what I want to know is, does anyone else deal with this? I'm curious to know if, since I have had traumatic experiences due to "stomach issues" (aka vom**ing), could that be related to my inability to burp?
Just curious what all you folks out there have to say.
