I have been experiencing excessive burping for three weeks now. This burping is causing discomfort plus I'm losing my appetite. In addition when I hiccup I get acid reflex and my heart feels like it is going to jump out of my chest. I have tried eating sl

It: It sounds as though you may be suffering from gastro-esophageal reflux disease (gerd). The most common symptoms of gerd are:

- heartburn
- sore throat
- "lump in the throat" sensation or difficulty swallowing
- acidic or sour taste in your mouth (some people describe a rotten egg-type taste)
- dry cough
- hoarseness
- regurgitation (wet burps)

dairy products such as yogurt or milkshakes can give some relief - milk has antacid properties. You can also try over the counter antacid medications such as Tums (calcium carbonate) or maalox. It is important to discuss these symptoms with your doctor. There are many other antacid and acid blocker medications that can help alleviate your symptoms if your symptoms continue. In the meantime, there are a few things you can do to help:

- avoid spicy, acidic, or fatty foods
- avoid alcohol and caffeine
- quit smoking if you smoke
- avoid tight clothing - especially tight belts and pants
- eat small meals
- do not eat for a few hours before going to bed.

Good luck! ...Read more
