    To me it sounds like IBS ..Try Gaviscon syrup three times a day 10mls.. or can you think of anything you may have eaten that could have caused food poisoning? like minute steak or chicken.. What are your bowel movements like? loose soft or Normal, undigested food? Sound like Indigestion along with bloatedness.. you may have to check the sorts of foods you can eat and see how they affect you?

    You may have an allergy? How long has this been going on how old are you? do you drink?

    I had food poisoning Shegela Soni which caused IBS which eventually went over time.. best to have a chat with the Doctor to eliminate certain things.. last resort endoscopy. If it is reflux there has to be a reason for it?

    Or maybe you are pregnant??

      Are you a little anxious at times ? I think it is Irritable Bowel Syndrome..if you get alternate bowel stools Bloatedness a and wind.. all the the symptoms of IBS.. there are some great Books on Amazon ..check them out. drink mint cordial.. Drink Milk and change your diet away from things that make the gut work hard.. Eat probiotic Yoghurts..You need to line your tummy and not eat spiced food or Carbonated drinks or straight Alcohol.. Gastritis is caused by bacteria so you ruled that out..

      Best of luck for the Doctor tomorrow.. discuss IBS.

    Hey there!

    I kinda feel like you so you're not alone.. sometimes I feel sharp pains around my trunk (they can be in the chest, ribs, stomach), I feel nauseous and bloated all the time and I'm always burping while my tummy makes lots of noises. I went to the doctor and as I mentioned heartburns he sent me back with antiacids and told me to wait 3 weeks to see if the symptoms disappear. If they don't I'll get an endoscopy. 

    I hope you get better! Please tell me something as soon as you get somei nformation
