okay. this is going to sound really weird.
here goes...

in the past week, i have been burping like CRAZY. today i counted my burps and i've burped 43 times today. now this wouldn't worry me all that much except for the fact that before a week ago, I burped about once every 3 months. and now i am like barney from the simpsons. i am quite disturbed and really confused. i am eating the same things i usually do, maybe a little more than usual, but not a whole lot more.

what is going on?!

sorry for the silliness of this post!


(i just made it to 44 for today! i think that's a world record!)

Most people with excessive burping and bloating are air swallowers. Air enters the gastrointestinal tract when mouth breathing or talking/drinking while eating. A second frequent cause of gas is a change indiet such that gas forming foods are now eaten in greater amounts e.g. cabbage, beans, milk for many people. A third explanation (and one that is unusual in those with an intact GI tract) is malabsorption.
