Air bubble distress

    
Asked by skywatch (Male; 55; CHINA; mild sleep hypnea, pre-hypertension (both conditions are being treated) no major problems, other minor conditions have been resolved.; Relevant drugs:10 mg benazepril for BP, and BP is normal ) on Thu 03, Apr 2014 06:22pm

About 1 week ago, while drinking water from a large container I swallowed a large air bubble and felt extreme and unbearable pain in my esophagus for about 10-15 seconds. Now I feel ill in the stomach area, and have little or no hunger with frequent feelings of pressure under the diaphragm with or without food in my stomach. There is no eruption of stomach acid or heartburn. The symptoms have not really changed since the incident. Will this condition heal? Did I do permanent damage to the tissue? Thanks for any help you can give.

Hi, Air swallowing is possible when food is eaten in a hurry. Also faulty breathing techniques can lead to air swallowing. However the air will not remain in the stomach for long either it is absorbed or expelled out by burping. Hence the pain will eventually subside. Semithicone against prescription will help to alleviate bloating. You should avoid carbonated beverages. You need to identify and avoid the triggering agents. Get in touch with a Doctor. Take care. Hope this helps. The answer is based on information provided. Exact advice is not possible without a proper examination and investigations. You are requested to consult your Doctor. Take care and keep us posted.
