Gastric reflux: You are probably having reflux(backing up) of stomach acid into your food pipe(esophagus) which is causing the belching. It is happening right after eating because stomach acid production starts with food entering the stomach. You need to try medications like Maalox, Mylanta, Pepcid (famotidine) AC, Prilosec OTC which can help symptoms. You also need to stay upright at least 45 minutes after eating. ...Read more

If an ultrasound shows gallstones, or a hida scan (a gallbladder function test) is abnormal, it would be useful to ask your doctor to refer you to a surgeon. If these tests are normal, it would be reasonable to have an upper GI scope to look for where the irritation is in your stomach or esophagus. ...Read more

May be LPR: LPR=laryngopharyngeal reflux. Exposure of the throat to stomach acid & pepsin may result in inflammation of the vocal cords (as is also often seen with acid regurgitation). Acute laryngitis may result, but watch out for chronic hoarseness, mucus & throat clearing, airway spasms, bronchitis, an asthma-type presentation, and even a higher risk of throat cancer. Belching may accompany regurgitation. ...Read more
