Interesting. I have been recently burping a lot as well. But connected it more to what I eat. Though it is hard to pin point what causes it.
I also have generalized anxiety and take Zoloft. How did you make the connection between anxiety and burping? Does it occur more at night?
My brother just informed me that he is experiencing a similar connection between burping and anxiety. He started burping excessively after meals right around the time that our father went in the hospital for quadruple bypass surgery a year and 1/2 ago.
Any additional information or experience that anyone has with this connection would be much appreciated. I'm guessing that dealing directly with the anxiety might be a beneficial approach? What has worked for people so far?
I had a bad bout with anxiety a couple of years ago and have since started the burping thing sometime since then. My doc gave me some prevacid (i think) but I knew it was not acid reflux so I never even tried to take it. I am not sure which comes first the chicken or the egg cause when I notice I am burping constantly I do feel kinda anxious but I chalked that up to wondering what the heck is wrong.
It's kinda sad that the original discussion was started in 2000 and I haven't seen a diagnosis for what this is?
