This is Dr. David
gas and burping is often from too much stomach acid in your stomach and gastritis,
excessive gas can be from milk allergies or gluten sensitivity in your diet
you might have to avoid milk and lactose for 1-2 weeks and see if this helps your gas
you might have to avoid gluten in pasta, bread, pizza for 1-2 weeks to see if you are sensitive to gluten.
avoiding alcohol and soda can help decrease gas
eating a more bland diet can help as well
keeping a food log of foods you eat to see what foods worsen your symptoms can help
let me know if you have other questions.

Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 year ago.
burping is from stomach acid
stomach acid blockers like zantac or nexium and maalox and mylanta can decrease stomach acid.
GasX can help decrease gas
doing what I suggested above can help your lower bowels
