Esophagus.: You might have an issue with your lower esophagus. It could be a hiatal hernia, diverticula, web or stricture. All of these are benign problems that can usually be improved. Your doctor may order a barium swallow (drinking contrast under xray), or endoscopy to see what's wrong. ...Read more

Consider this...: Aerophagia (swallowed air) distends stomach & may result in burping. Also, gassiness/ stomach distension after meals can reflect: 1) partial gastric outlet obstruction due to gastritis/ulcer; 2) pyloric narrowing from scar;3) gastroparesis due to delayed stomach emptying (as w/diabetic gut neuropathy); 4) bacterial overgrowth in gut; 5) any malabsorption; 6) pancreatic maldigestion; 7) ibs; 8) more. ...Read more
What is causing me to burp constantly? It feels like there is gas stuck in my chest and the pressure is giving me headaches.
This : This sounds like gerd (gastroesophageal reflux disease) aka acid reflux. When too much acid is produced in your stomach it flows back up into the esophagus causing burning and burping. Headaches can also result from this problem, but are not as common. Gerd can be managed by eating less acidic foods, spicy foods, chocolate and caffeine. Also acid blockers (i.e. Pepcid) or proton pump inhibitors (i.e.Prolosec otc) can be used to help reduce symptoms. On the other hand chest pressure can also be cardiac in origin. Things such as angina can mimic gerd. This occurs when your heart muscle is not getting enough oxygen, and can ultimately lead to a heart attack. I recommend making an appointment with your pcp (primary care provider) sooner rather than later. A more detailed history and physical along with diagnostic tests will provide a diagnosis, and treatment can be started. ...Read more
