After eating, I frequently burp and this causes me to regurgitate some of my food into my throats. What causes this? It feels really irritates.

Reflux: It sounds like you have reflux (where acid and sometimes food come back up). You need to see a gastroenterologist to have this worked up (a scope down your esophagus to see why this may be happening). In the mean time, you can change things regarding your diet to try and alleviate these issues (don't eat late at night, don't go straight to bed, avoid caffeine, avoid chocolate, etc). ...Read more

Probably: This type of symptom occurs with reflux, hiatal hernia, esophageal obstruction or motility disorder. A gastroenterologist is best qualified to evaluate and advise you for this symptom. In the meantime avoid fatty foods as they delay stomach emptying. Eat smaller feedings several times a day instead of large meals. Don't eat late at night and sleep with your chest higher than your abdomen. ...Read more

Gastroenterologist: In addition to taking ppi or zantac, (ranitidine) I feel your symptoms would improve by avoiding spicey and fatty, fried foods as well as caffeine, alcohol and nicotine all of which either relax your the valve separating the stomach from the esophagus or increase the acidity in your diet. Your symptoms aren't characteristic of cancer. A gastroenterologist is best qualified to evaluate and treat you. ...Read more

Belching following a meal can also be due to aerophagia but also to gassy food ingesting, hiatal hernia or gall bladder dysfunction.

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

May need EGD: It is generally recommended that someone over 50 years old presenting with dyspepsia symptoms be considered for an endoscopy. I think that if your symptoms are clear-cut and represent gastro-esophageal reflux manifest by heartburn, a trial of omeprazole could be consider and should have a rapid benefit. With bloating and belching after foods, it could be a number of other things. Discuss option ...Read more

Reflux: If the opening into the stomach from the esophagus is loose then contents from the stomach can regurgitate (burp) up and you will taste what is in there. Also if you swallow a lot of gas when you eat or even talk that has will bubble out. Some things like soda make gas. All of this can be called gastro esophageal reflux disease also know as gerd.

Sounds like it: But it could be ulcer disease too. Other organs in the area are liver, colon, and kidneys. An abdominal ultrasound exam will tell whether you have gallstones. It is safe, non-invasive, relatively inexpensive, and accurate for gallstone diagnosis.
