I see. I do wonder if you have something called bacterial overgrowth syndrome. This is a cause of lots of gas and is caused by too much of some bacteria rather than others living in our gut and this can be tested for and treated.

How to check it?

So your GP would refer you to see a gastroenterologist and they organize it for you. It's a test of your breath and they can tell from that and treat you according to that. In the meantime you should start taking a daily pro-biotic supplement as well.

I had for helicobacter test. It is negative
Customer: replied 19 days ago.
Isn't not this?

No it's different. That is a bug that lives in the stomach but bacterial overgrowth is a test of multiple bugs and from the bowels rather than just the stomach.

Customer: replied 19 days ago.
Ok. I will ask them to do it. But why Sulporide 50 mg helped to dissaper temporaryly these belching with air ?

Probably as it causes the stomach to relax a bit but you should definitely ask to be referred for the test. I hope that helped, and that you feel better soon. All the very best.
