In brief: Gerd

GERD is mostly about heartburn and sour eructations; gas and abdominal pain are not classic symptoms.
I would wonder if your symptoms are more due to lactose or gluten intolerance. People who belch alot often swallow air especially when they make themselves belch. It's better to take mylanta after meals to prevent gas build-up. When bloated, drinking hot water helps break down the gas better
