I am sorry you have to stick your finger down your throat.

at your age, your muscles may be too weak to bring up gas up to burp.

for some people, they have to drink a small amount of soda or carbonated beverage to add a bit more gas for them to be able to burp.

you may beneftit from anti-gas medications like GasX

have you taken that before?
