London, Mar 5 (ANI): A British grandma has revealed that she has become the victim of her own constant burping, due to which she has been leading a secluded life for two years.
Jean Driscoll, 72, a divorced grandmother-of-five from Chelmsford, Essex, started belching two years ago, and despite taking anti-wind treatments and visiting doctors and specialists, she has still not been cured.
Driscoll has now confined herself to her home to avoid the embarrassment of people mocking her.
"It was quite mild but gradually it grew much worse. I don't go out any more. People laugh and stare. It's awful travelling to the hospital on the train, everyone looks at you," the Sun quoted her as saying.
"People stand and laugh at me. I've had enough of being stared at," she said.
Driscoll, who lives with her son Stephen, 36, was referred to Broomfield Hospital in Chelmsford, but doctors there could not find out what was causing her predicament.
"Obviously I'm pleased there's nothing seriously wrong but I would really like an answer," she said.
"I've got no life now. It's making me depressed to be trapped in my home. Nobody has been able to tell me what's causing this. I find it very upsetting," she added. (ANI)
