Burping/acid: May be reflux with or without H pylori a bacteria . Would get tested for H pylori and can try famotidine and or omeprazole for reflux. Avoid smoking, alcohol, fatty food, citrus or acid foods, spicy foods as they promote acid reflux. Would also check gallbladder for stones-with sonogram. f/u/ w/ MD
