I don't have heartburn. But im usually bloated, gas trapped inmy throat/chest, will wake up breathless&.Burping will relieved the discomfort. Is it gerd?

Gas: There's a good chance that you're a gas swallower. Many of us swallow lots of air during the day and get bloated that way. If you're drinking lots of beverages during the day you likely are swallowing lots of gas with them, especially if they're carbonated. If you suck on candy, etc. Pay attention to this and you may be able to decrease it. Simethicone can decrease the size of your gas bubbles. ...Read more

Sometimes when I burp I burp up white foamy spit. What causes this? I do have GERD

GERD: Burping up secretions is not uncommon in patients with GERD. Antacids will decrease the amount of fluid the stomach makes, but you may still have non-acid fluid that is refluxed. The only absolute cure might be fundoplication, a survey to tighten the valve between the stomach and esophagus. Your doctor can tell you whether you might benefit.

Tecta ↓es Acid, not: Gastric reflux. Like most of medicine, symptom (not underlying ds) treatment is mainstream.
