Belching (Eructation)

see also Indigestion

Usually caused by swallowing air when nervous or by eating too fast; to relieve discomfort in the stomach, the air is regurgitated as wind. Belching may also be a symptom of Indigestion, especially after rich food, Hiatus Hernia (if bending or lying down makes wind worse), pyloric stenosis, or Gallstones (wind after eating fatty food); wind is also common in babies, and in the later stages of pregnancy, as the uterus presses on the stomach.
