Digestive Disorders

Feeling of Blockage

03/04/2010

Question:

Lately, after a meal, I experience a lot of burping which sometimes lead to a small regurgitation of what I had just eaten. Most often, it happens after I eat something with chilli, but sometimes even after drinking black tea. It felt like something was blocked along the passage and cause this problems. It happens mostly after dinner. I generally have wind and gastric problems already and am not sure if this relates to it as well.

Answer:

It could be all related. Any high fiber food (beans with chili) causes increase flatulence and belching. That is normal. Having had long standing stomach issues could also be related. An endoscopy or evaluation of your gallbladder may be helpful in differentiating symptoms.
