Reflux?: Could be reflux from a hiatal hernia. In this context, stomach contents can ascend the esophagus and arc over into the airway, affecting your breathing. And it would certainly contribute to the burping and bloating. It’s one thought, but you’d be best served visiting with a Gastroenterologist.
