Do a search on aerophagia. It happens.
Here I go again with an observation that differs from many answers. Some answer that the pressure forces air into the stomach, but the pressure is not enough to do that. It may be enough to allow a small bolus of air to enter the eppigoltis, but I think that is due to the relaxation of the eppiglotis. I have sensed this when I am almost asleep. when you swallow, then peristalysis forces this air into the stomach, not the pressure. The Gas-x and other products are useless in aerophgia since it is air insteat of metabolic gas. Again this is observation and logic.
I could be wrong.
