Hello doctor,

I am suffering from lots of burping and trapped gas and acidity from four years recently. The doctor has done acid reflux surgery and paraumbilical hernia surgery, but still, sometimes I suffer burping and shortness of breath, I fell my gas trapped, when I pass gas I fell good sometimes so much excessive burping.

I think it is a meganblase syndrome, I read your article on meganblase syndrome and I felt precisely the same symptoms like meganblase syndrome-like bubble in stomach and so much burping and shortness of breath that time, please guide me and give me treatment because after acid reflux surgery also I have the same problem other problems like acid reflux now stop but excessive burping sometimes and gas trapped sometimes.
