Researchers say people who can't burp suffer from embarrassment, anxiety, and depression because of the condition, in addition to physical pain.

Retrograde cricopharyngeal dysfunction (RCD-R) causes abdominal swelling, “socially awkward” sounds from the chest and neck, and abdominal distension.

The research was conducted by a group of academics from a Texas university.
