Horrible burping problem

I've had reflux and anxiety for years but for the last few days I've had this horrible urge to burp ever few seconds/minutes with an accompanying pain in my upper right back/Oesophagus, nausea and general loss of appetite. Sometimes this can lead to a horrible burping attack where I just have to burp ever few seconds to relieve the pain in my back, acid reflux and bloating. I tried an all day doctor but he just blew me off as having nerves and gave me sleeping medication but now I'll have to beg my regualar local GP to not just ignore me.

I'm really scared.

    I also had this problem around a year ago when my reflux started. After a while it went away. I was under treatment for this and the doctor said that I should drink slowly and try to exhale at the same time that I want to drink. Also breating exercisex help. Exhale from your mouth completely and inhale from your nose.

    Adam I wouldn't be scared about it.  I'm 55 years old and first started with gastritis about 10 years ago.  One of the first symptoms I get is constant burping and sometimes it comes out before I can be prepared (away from people) and it's embarassing!  I now get "bouts" of this.  I was on omeprazol for a couple years and was switched over to pantoprazol.  Taking Zantac as needed also but I still have "burping" bouts and a LOUD stomach.  I recently discontinued my pantoprazol as I'd been on it over a year and everything I've been reading says not to be on it for long periods.  It was really difficult coming off of it as I was having stomach pain, diahrea and more gas but it has finally gotten somewhat better.  I take simethicone as needed and that helps with the excess gas.  I'd get a new GP.....
