Inability to belch
No. Burp. For. You.
Abdominal bloating and discomfort
Your belly gets swelly.
Nausea, or chest pain (especially after eating)
It can feel like a breakup (your heart hurts) or a new romance (your stomach is woozy)—but not in a good way.
Frequent, painful hiccups
Like a baby, we just need to be burped— oh wait.
Yeah, that’s heartburn, friends.
Audible gurgling noises from the chest and lower neck
It sounds like the last bit of water is draining from the bathtub, but for hours, and inside of you.
Excessive and/or uncontrollable flatulence
Too many farts, they’re all coming from you, and there’s nothing you can do to stop them.
Difficulty vomiting (occurs in many cases, but not all)
What comes up, won’t come out.
Social anxiety and inhibition (due to the above)
Your body contributes to a conversation in ways you never asked it to. Naturally, you’d prefer it keep its opinions to itself.
