So belching is definitely a symptom of gerd.Is it normal though to do it often throughout the day,or is that just what comes along with this gerd thing?Because it is really bothersome to have that feeling of air there all the time,and any advice on how to alleviate it

I don't know if the excessive belching is caused by the GERD or the medication. I personally do not have the belching while on my medication. I would ask your doctor about going on a gas med therapy (i.e. Gas-X) or maybe changing your PPI. If you just started noticing the belching increasing after you started taking the prilosec, it sounds like it may be the culprit. Maybe someone else will identify your symptoms with there own and be able to help you.

Thanks,i don't know whats causing it either.I have been on prilosec for 2 years,i always experienced some sort of gas from it,but never belching like this.It is weird though because thats the only symptom of gerd i have.I haven't had heartburn in 2 years,unless i missed taking my pills.But i must say it is not fun living with this,cause i get hungry at night but i am afraid to eat after 7,because i am afraid of air bringing food or acid up when i sleep.I am afraid of having stomach cancer.

Have you talked to your Dr. about this symptom? I do know that belching is an effect of GERD .. maybe your Prilosec is not working. Have you considered changing medicines? 

Hope you feel better soon! :)
