I also burp a lot, expecially in the morning. I burp after eating anything, or drinking plain water. Usually my burps are dry, but occasionally they are followed by brief heartburn. I didn't have much heartburn until after I stopped Prilosec, which didn't seem to be helping. The heartburn is getting less, I stopped the Prilosec on June 1. Burping is my major symptom, but I saw my doctor for the first time in February for chest pain, and I developed stomach pain in March. I continued to have some chest pain on Prilosec, though not as bad, but I also changed my eating habits significantly. I see a gastroenterologist for the first time this Friday, July 8. My primary MD says I have GERD, also gastritis. I'm wondering if my stomach isn't emptying, based on something I read here, because I have the most symptoms in the morning.
