While I was in college (a couple years ago) I had a binge eating disorder which I am now in remission from. I was diagnosed with a hiatal hernia, though, which I assume was caused by the binge eating and the pressure of excess food on my stomach. Though I did not gain weight from the binges, I DID experience bloating, burping, and IBS from all of the food.
Now, I have the IBS portion of my disorder under control probably because I no longer binge as often (I would say it occurs now maybe every other week). But apparently the hernia never really healed because I still burp up food and gas from my stomach for hours after every meal, even if it is a very small one. I DO NOT have acid reflux, just the feeling like I need to burp. My question is, over time, will this condition go away if I can end the binge eating? Part of the problem is that the burping/bloated feeling makes me feel so miserable that it discourages me from trying to live a healthy lifestyle. I hope that one day the condition will go away!
