Aerophagia is swallowing air.

Increased swallowing of air can be caused by:

  • swallowing large volumes of air during stress or nervous tension
  • frequent swallowing of air by some people due to chewing gum or smoking
  • hasty meals
  • poorly fitted dentures
  • increased swallowing due to or constant drainage of mucus from the nasal cavity along the back of the pharynx (postnasal syndrome) or instillation of nose drops

This is a functional indigestion. Aerophagia occurs when a person swallows too much air. This causes him to regurgitate after a while. This can happen to a person both during the meal and outside this time. This ailment occurs in both adults and children.
