For a year now I have dealt with frequent belching. Now, I am a 30 year old female so this is slightly unusual and a little embarrassing. I have repeatedly explained to my Dr as best that I could that I felt as if an air pocket was continuously lodged in my abdomen and that I that felt that burping would somehow ease my discomfort...however one only led to more. After trying everything over the counter from antacids to gas-x and then prescription Prevacid (with no relief) I finally went to a gastrointestinal specialist. Within days I was in for an endoscopy. I was sent home only with a follow-up appt for biopsy results (oh by the way he took 2 biopsies), a prescription for Prevacid, and a note stating that their findings were an ulcer and acid reflux disease. My problem is the fact that the only symptom that I have is burping...I have no indigestion, heartburn, pain....is it possible to have reflux disease and the ulcer without all of the other symptoms. Has anyone else had only the "gassy" symptoms and found something that works. I welcome your advice or feedback. Thanks.
