Excessive burping

The various unpleasant manifestations of Helicobacter can be described here. Remember however that the great majority of persons with Hp have no symptoms that they are aware of and consider themselves normal.

Excessive burping

Post by Sajal » Fri Jul 12, 2019 3:21 am

After 4 months of completing standard first line therapy, I still burp a lot. Eradication is confirmed by conducting RUT one and half months after completing antibiotics course.
I am in great trouble as whenever I sit or lie my stomach starts filling with air. It creates a lot of pressure in my stomach and throat. I have to stand up and walk for releasing the air via burp. It just not feel like normal. I am sure only inflammation of stomach cannot be responsible for such symptoms.
I cannot believe I have to still suffer like this despite successfully eradicating h pylori four months ago. I know some people takes years to recover, but trust me here no one goes through such terrible symptoms which I am experiencing. I am certainly not recovering.
Even my GI couldn't believe that I still suffer. He wants me to go for second line antibiotics treatment.
Help me here guys. I have no idea what to do. I have lost all hope.

if you have no H. pylori, then there is no need for another course of antibiotics.

I know some patients suffer burping even without H. pylori. It is not completely sure why. Nevertheless, during the course of antibiotics and PPI, did your burping symptom go away? if yes, then perhaps you can try PPI again.

Ppis does not subsides burping. My burping started with other symptoms like feeling of lump in throat. Over time the feeling of lump in throat subsided but I still burp a lot.

I continued taking acid suppressors because of hyperacidity.

Good that you are taking PPI for the acid problem.

The burping may not be because of H pylori. It’s probably some undigested food fermenting in the stomach. Do you feel bloating? If you are, perhaps you can ask your doctor about domperidone.

Yes. Bloating is very common for me after having melas or when I lie down. It gives me the urge to burp.

I am planning to go for another test to reconfirm eradication. (RUT came out negative 4 months ago)
