Question: Burping Sensation

 dlore - Thu Dec 08, 2005 10:58 am


I'm new here, and I just had a quick question. I've had this feeling since I woke up this morning that I had to burp, and I just can't do it. It's like if I had a massive burp, then the feeling would go away. It's really annoying. Could this be the beginning of acid reflux, or something like that. I recently quit smoking, if that has anything to do with it.

Oh, and I've gagged a few times, and almost felt like I was going to vomit.
