okay. this is going to sound really weird. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"> here goes...<br><br><br><br>
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.<br><br><br><br>
what is going on?!<br><br><br><br>
sorry for the silliness of this post!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/blush.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":eek:"><br><br><br><br>
(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.

sometimes, when i get too much roughage in general (ie, too many salads in one day), i get really gassy. have you increased your gas producing food intake?

i guess i do eat a lot of gassy type foods. i eat salads and 1 apple everyday... but i've been eating salads and apples everyday for about a year now! that's what puzzles me. oh well. thanks for the input guys <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">
