The Cause Is Often Belching During Sleep Sitting?
Excuse me, why do I always burp when I sleep sitting with my head on the table? even though the mouth is not open while sleeping
Hello, good night Dimas ...
Food digestion starts from the time the food is chewed by the mouth, then enters the esophagus and stomach. When someone swallows air while eating, or drinks soda / alcoholic drinks containing air bubbles, then the gases will rise again from the stomach / esophagus, so that burping occurs. In a sitting position, where the body is upright, the gas will accumulate in the upper stomach, making it easier for belching.
Some behaviors that increase the risk of swallowing air include smoking, chewing gum, eating too fast or while talking, and so on. In addition, high-gas foods such as broccoli, cabbage, soft drinks, alcoholic drinks, drinks containing caffeine, fatty and oily foods can also increase one's chances of burping.
If you experience excessive belching (more than 4 times at a time after eating), especially if accompanied by frequent complaints of heartburn, heartburn in the chest and throat, nausea, or vomiting, then you should check with your doctor to find out the possibility of other conditions such as GERD (increased gastric acid), gastritis / inflammation of the stomach (ulcer), Irritable Bowel Syndrome, and so on.
That's all, hopefully it helps ..
