Unrelenting need to belch
avatar
An_250802 posted:
My mother, who is in her late 70s, has lately been suffering from an unrelenting need to belch. The feeling begins in the morning and lasts for a good part of the day. She has tried drinking carbonated beverages, taking mylanta and similar products and has gone to a gastro specialist. The specialist did an endoscopy and found something called brunnergland hyperplasia, for which he prescribed medication. This was over a month ago. The need to belch has not subsided and my mom is misereable. Any suggestions what may be causing this? She has a history of GERD, but this is unlike anything she has ever experienced. Any suggestions what may be causing this? The specialists insists there is nothing else wrong. Thanks.

I would also like to add that nothing she has tried has given her any relief whatsoever.
