help please i beg you

since yesterday afternoon I have the worst case of gas. I start getting a small pain in my stomach. It slowly spreads through my entire stomach and up my throat. It hurts a lot and makes it hard for me to breath. but I can only burp some times. Most of teh times I can't burp. I have to rush to the bathroom and put my finger down my throat. This causes the loudest longest burps you can imagine. It's good for a few seconds then the whole process starts again. I don't have insurance or money to go to a doctor. took zantac but it did not help. Anyone out there knows something I can take. The pain really is horrendous.

  • I could never burp either. I would just have air bubbles bubble up in my throat. It would make me nausous and I would have to stick my fingers down my throat too in order to burp. I was misreble. It got really bad recently. I was having to stick my fingers down my throat several times a day to get the excess air out. All of a sudden I started burping. It started just little ones here and there. The "air bubbles" would come out instead of bursting in my throat. Now I burp ALL the time. I haven't had to stick my finger down my throat in months. I guess all the forced burping opened something up in my throat that allows me to burp now. Who knows. I still can't "make" myself burp, or even control when I do. It just come out. I feel your pain. Maybe after a while yours will resolve on it's own too.

  • Try laying on the floor and stretch and twist your body at the same time. It helped me once when I was hurting how your describing. Good luck and I will say a prayer for you..

  • Sounds like it might be acid reflux or possibly indigestion. I ocassionally feel this way (not so severe) and I try to drink something carbonated which usually helps me burp. Don't know if it has ever worked for anyone else.

  • I had this too. I have a gastritis and sometimes I have a heart burn. What I do and this help me immediately. I do a potato juice. Get a whole fresh potato, make a juice and drink it. It a little nasty, but it works. Also I take Aloe Vera ones a day. I feel heart burn sometimes, but not often.
    When I had it for a long time I got Zantac, it is available in any store, if there is 150 mg, I took one a day, on the morning. Zantac available in 75 mg, then you may take two times a day. But remember if it does not going away in two weeks, you must see the doctor!
    Good luck.
