Excessive Burps

I have been burping excessively for last some days. It DOESN'T cause much discomfort but I doubt, if it can be a precursor to any serious problem. Sometimes, it feels like sour liquid comes up in my mouth and that is unpleasant. I DON'T have other things like chest pain, difficulty in sleeping etc. Please advise.

Dear Sir, Looks like you seem to have GERD (Gastro Esophageal Reflux Disease). I would strongly recommend that you consult a gastroenterologist get an Upper GastroIntestinal Scopy done to find out the extent of the disease.

Hello there...i understand your concern...try eating several small meals instead of three large ones whenever you can...Avoid foods that irritate your stomach, especially those that are spicy, acidic, fried or fatty... avoid coffee,tea etc... Avoid stress,consider calming activities, such as meditation, yoga etc...sleep with head raised position and have dinner at least 2 hours before sleep..do regular exercises...take pantaprazole 40 mg twice daily before food with above....consult physician if symptoms persists.
