Need GI Consult: You have acid reflex not relieved by over the counter zantac, (ranitidine) which is not so uncommon.You can try Omeprazole a stronger acid suppresser available over the counter
you also have flatulence problem which may have a different cause
consult your doctor or a gastroenterologist to find the right therapy for your problem.
