I find myself burping frequently. I know I hyperventilate and swallow a lot of air, I try to be conscious of it but it still happens. Anyhow, I feel like a muscle at the top of my stomach and below my sternum has been tense/knotted and I think excessive burping has exasperated this feeling. I don't feel nauseous or anything, just uncomfortable and I force myself to burp for some relief. I'm thinking I've put myself in a vicious circle by trying to get relief and at the same time over using certain muscles and then my HA kicks in. Thoughts?
