    Carbon dioxide causes the stinging sensation, when you drink soda It immediately combines with water in your saliva to form carbonic acid. Though the acid is not what causes the sting it is the CO2 bubbles

    . Think of orange juice or lemon, it is sour and does not sting, yet it has higher Ph (more acidic).

    the carbonated water the is in soda if sipped can escape by burping if you chug the soda the carbon can not escape and builds up in your stomache causing pain. it will subside with time as the gas escapes

    well if you are talking about soda, then soda has carbon dioxcide in it. which is really bad for you along with acids that eat away at your insides

      "acids that eat away at your insides" worse so than the HCL in your stomach?

    it might hurt because it has a lot of carbond oxegen

    • George5 years agoReport

      Might, and "carbond oxegen", you must be referring to CO2.

    it can cause you to regurgitate the liquid, back into your esophagus, thus causing erosion.
