Patient Question

Hello Doctor


I've been burping excessively every 20 minutes for the past four months, particularly after meals. While I don't feel acidic during the day, I do experience occasional nighttime acidity and increased salivation. I've been taking medication for three days, but I haven't seen much improvement in my symptoms yet. How long does it typically take for these symptoms to improve?

Answered by Dr. Jagdish Singh


Thank you for reaching out to Dr. Galen. Please find the below response to your query.

1. Frequent burping after meals, along with nighttime acidity and increased salivation, may signal hyperacidity and acid reflux, sometimes exacerbated by anxiety.

2. Lifestyle changes like exercise, meditation, and yoga can help manage anxiety and gastrointestinal discomfort.

3. Antibiotics may not be needed; lifestyle adjustments and over-the-counter medications targeting acid production are often effective.

4. If symptoms persist, seek medical evaluation for proper diagnosis and treatment guidance.
