Topic: oboist - embarassing burping!
I've recently started playing oboe after several years of only intermittent activity. I slowly worked up over several weeks to playing nearly every day for between 30 minutes and 3 hours.
During the same period of time, I have experienced an embarrassingly increased amount of burping. Most embarrassing during ensemble pauses, although it happens throughout the day, not only while playing.
My physician thinks it's dietary, and is testing me for all manner of medical conditions, but I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this or has any ideas about how the development of muscles needed to play the oboe could have anything to do with this problem.
