I am 25 and cant burp!! LOL. Its like my body dosent know how. I know wierd huh? When I have the feeling like I have to burp I open my mouth and a growling noise comes out! LOL. Never a real burp just a growl. I dont get it. My brother has tried to teach me how and I still cant. My mom said I did burp when I was a baby. Can you burp? Have you ever known someone who couldnt? I wonder what would cause you not to burp?

Thanks copperkitten you gave me my first laugh here on mylot today. I wish I could hear the growling noise, I am laughing as i think about you opening your mouth to burp and just growling!!! I can burp but It isnt something I am famous for thanfully, I never really thought it was a skill it just happens. I have never heard of anyone else who can't burp. If your mum says you burped when you were a baby maybe you need her to pat you on the back now and see if that helps!!!!lol On a serious note I don't think it is something to be worried about, you are just an individual with a growl instead of a boring burp like the rest of us do!!! You growl girl. =)

What an interesting topic... do you mean you can't burp at all or you can't burp whenever you want to? I've burped before, of course... but small quiet little burps. I have no idea how to command your body to burp on will though. It always astounds me how some people can burp the whole alphabet a time... how much gas do they have in their system? Anyway, I don't think we're missing out on much... just something funny to do when you're with your friends. Good luck on your burping though.

I cant burp at all! I dont know how people can do that either. They must have good control of those muscels that make them burp.

hi copperkitten, i too cant burp, and i find it very uncomfortable to not be able to! can anyone imagine all that gas building up and not being able to come out. yes it hurts. most of the time i have to stick my fingers down my throw to fake a vomit just to relieve the pressure (and no i dont vomit). its very uncomfortable and would love to learn how to burp too.

You are actually the first person I have ever heard of that can't burp. I can, and have some pretty good ones too! I surprised my hubby one night after having a Dr.Pepper (soda always does it for me). Your Friend, PurpleTeddyBear.

hello my little burpless buddy, my house mate suffers from the same problem. (with the exception of the growling). He does make up for it by having an incredibly loud fart though. do you have this same problem??? love James

I also can not burp and make the growling noise, its like the air is escaping but not the way it is suppose to, but i also hickup in stead of burp sometimes. It really does suck you feel bloated unless you fart which i can do very well lol.
