Greetings! Welcome to Health Science.

Here's where we talk about the latest fad diets, the advantages of vegetarianism, the joy of exercise and good health. Like everywhere else at Tweb our decorum rules apply.

This is a place to exchange ideas and network with other health conscience folks, this isn't a forum for heated debate.

  • So I figured out what's wrong with my stomach...

    And it's weird.

    A bit of background: I've had some kind of stomach problem for around 12 years. It's never gotten worse, and it's always been manageable, but it's always been there. Liveable, but really, really annoying. I'm almost totally convinced, now, that I know what the problem is.

    I am physically incapable of burping when I need to. That's it. I don't have a disease that's made me nauseated for half my life, there's just something wrong with my esophagus (or something) that prevents me from burping.

    My burps, when I needed them the most, had abandoned me.

    When you're done laughing at this goofy problem of mine (and believe me, it is a real problem, and an incredibly uncomfortable one), does anybody have any advice on how to burp?

    Try sucking in your gut as much as you can, and once you've reached that point, try to swallow. You should feel a pocket of air lodge itself in your throat. Then try to expel that air like you're trying to speak.

      Meanwhile, I'll belch a few good burps in your honor.

        Thanks, square_peg. I'll be practicing that.

        Cow Poke, I'm deeply touched. *sniff* Nobody's ever done that for me.

        This makes me laugh every time I think it, but this is now a legitimate prayer request of mine: "pray that I can burp!"

          Judging from Duck Duck Go, it's actually not unheard of. Can't find any good info on it yet, though...
