    Issues with burping.

    Here goes: I have several digestive issues going on including a colectomy, ileostomy, gerd, and a nasty bout of gastroperesis that put me in the hospital for almost a month. My main issue now, however, is that I have "gas" but I can't burp. It makes me feel continually nauseous and I can't eat. Right now I am fighting a respiratory infection along with the burping issue. This has happened in the past and I'm really, really, tired of it. I am on multiple medications, but I'm....

    Chronic GI Issues

    Hello, I've never posted in an online message board but after reading lots of conflicting articles online I figured I'd I've this a try in case anyone can help.

    Odd sensation near diaphragm with sleeptime nausea

    For the last 3 nights, I've been awakened about 3-4 hours into sleep with a feeling like food is coming up. I also start to salivate profusely. When I sit up or stand up the sensation goes away within about 5 minutes. The first two nights, it happened one time and I went back to sleep. Last night, it happened 3 times. During the day, I have a slight feeling of discomfort near the center of my diaphragm, which feels like an oddly overfull feeling, even when I haven't eaten for hours. I've....

    Bowel urgency

    Hi. For a number of years now I have experienced an urgent need to empty my vowels. This will happen at a random point in the day, and when it happens I have to rush to the toilet.

Once I have been to the toilet and has the bowel movement....
