About the symptom

A burp is a normal bodily function when the body releases excess air from the digestive tract through the mouth. Excessive burping is when people think they are burping far more than usual. It can be a sign of acid reflux or inflammation of the lining of the stomach.

When to see a doctor

Seek professional care if you experience any of the following symptoms

  • Abdominal pain

  • Diarrhea

  • Recent weight loss

  • Melena (black stools)

  • Respiratory wheeze

Possible causes

  • Aerophagia

    Excessive and repetitive swallowing of air, resulting in symptoms of burping and flatulence. It can be caused by psychological reasons or habits, or use of machines that assist in breathing (CPAP machines).

  • Functional dyspepsia

    A condition where symptoms such as pain or indigestion persist, even though investigations of the stomach and esophagus show no abnormalities.

  • Gastro Esophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)

    A condition where gastric acid reverses back up the esophagus (food pipe). It can be caused or worsened by obesity, alcohol and caffeine. Meal habits also play a role - eating large meals quickly or lying down after meals are known triggers.

  • Gastroduodenal ulcer
  • Gastric cancer
  • Vascular ring
  • Malnutrition after gastrointestinal surgery
