Now my question is, why does it happen more often and more extreme to some people? I have this problem bad xD Every time I drink soda, my nose flares pretty violently and a I can almost never take a sip, without having to burp directly afterwards.

It is the CO2 receptors cells/trigeminal nerve in the nasal lining/region that becomes stimulated by CO2 gas , not by carbonic acid. Age, sex, M or F, smokers or non smoker can determine onces sensitivity of CO2. Generally younger, females experience more of a burning sensation. The more receptor cells one has the more likely it is to have an intense sensation.

I get this every time I drink a fizzy drink and burp after even sipping a small amount of a fizzy drink, I'm not sure if this is anything or just normal for some people
