Which medication? plaquenil? I only started experiencing this when I started the plaquenil in August. That may be the reason why this is happening.

I used to have gastrointestinal issues until I went gluten free. It has really made a difference.

I do. It comes and goes. I will have it for a few weeks and then nothing. Had full GI work up....nothing. Chest pains with the belching is a newer GI type symptom I haven't had before now. Doctor believes because GI checked out may be related to the lung or heart.

I've had belching and gastrointestinal problems long before I started on Plaquenil. GI doc found nothing wrong. It's a real problem, along with pain. I take ginger and peppermint. I don't know that they help, but my belches are minty.
