Internal Medicine | Gastroenterology Questions Acid reflux

How can I stop burping?

I feel like I constantly burp and it's such a big problem. It doesn't matter if I've eaten something acidic or spicy that causes heartburn, I just burp. I'm not sure if there's anything that I can do make it okay. Can you suggest some remedy for this?

Try simethicone drops that we give babies, don’t talk a bunch while eating (leads to air swallowing), and if it doesn’t improve, learn to embrace it.
You need to see a gastroenterologist. But you can try Tums and Pepcid AC complete for a short period.
Do you have acid reflux? You likely do. Some people swallow air, which makes them burp, called aerophagia.
Burping is commonly associated with acid reflux. Do not lay down for 3 hours after eating. Try Prilosec OTC 30 min before breakfast for a couple of weeks. If the problem continues see your doctor.
