I get frequent fits of belching accompanied by pain across upper abdomen. Episodes can range from minor qhen I'm sitting in the car to major where pain and belching stop me sleeping. There is no definite trigger as can happen if not ate for a while or after eating.
Hi there,That is indeed frustrating.Pain and belching can be gallbladder problem related.Gallbladder if not functioning well can cause problems.The food does not digest well causing gas and belching besides pain.Hence, abdominal ultrasound is required.You can try simethicone and activated charcoal tablets after meals.Digestive enzyme supplements before meal will be helpful.

I've had a scan about 6 months ago and was told it was clear. Results may show I passed small stones in the past but my symptoms have been going on for at least 18 months now. Would removal cause same side effects?
