Sudden excessive belching/Burping &body aches with unconfirmed diagnosis..Thoughts?

Posted , 7 users are following.

Soooo in June I had sudden onset of belching n burping n feelings of air/gas rising up to chest. Long story but had endoscope in June with INITIAL diagnosis of "bile reflux gastritis". Started on zantex,sulcracate n no help. Predominant symptoms was excessive belching n burping. Me and that GI doc had f/o n he was kinda dismissive joking about it. He mentioned a "trial" of the muscle relaxer "baclofen". Tryed for 2 days 3x a day at 5mg but felt work was impacted. I have had 3-4 EKG test, ultrasound n ct scan of chest,abdomen n pelvis. All came back normal. That gi doc was kinda dismissive with " I offered all I can". I know have another GI follow up in 2 weeks. The first GI doc seemed to adjust his diagnosis but was NOT clear when I asked. He just said" no serious digestive pathology is shown". Soo I'm now on no meds n have burping/belching, some abdominal pains , lower back pain n feelings of inflammation in middle of back n lower back. Any feedback?
