Frequent Belching After Eating And Breathing Such As Narrowing
Good afternoon, I want to ask, I have been belching for almost a week but have been stuck in my chest area, and after eating my breath I feel blocked. The feeling of breathing disappears during sleep. What exactly happened to my health? Thank you.

Thank you for the question.
Frequent burping and shortness of breath are felt, which is felt mainly after eating and during sleep most often occurs due to GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease), which is a condition in which some acid from the stomach rises and irritates the esophagus because the valve is weakened. Not just complaints like you experience, sufferers of GERD can also feel tightness, like a burning chest, coughing, even vomiting in more severe cases.
In addition to GERD, your complaints may also arise due to gastritis, food allergies, intestinal obstruction, intestinal inflammation, bronchitis, pneumonia, pharyngitis, heart attacks, panic attacks, psychosomatic disorders, drug effects, obesity, and so on.
To improve, our advice, you do it first:
Eat small but frequent portions
Don't eat and drink gas, for example mustard greens, cabbage, soda, coffee, tea, sauce, chili sauce
Do not immediately sleep after eating
Compress warm stomach and chest that feels uncomfortable
Keep your weight so that it's not too fat
Discipline of exercise
Don't think too much
If your complaint improves with the above efforts, you should not panic too much. Expand stay at home so that complaints get better faster and you avoid the risk of disease (including COVID-19 which is currently endemic). But on the contrary, if the complaint feels burdensome, it's best to check yourself directly to the doctor or internist.
I hope this helps.
