prolonged burping and burning feeling behind your sternum is due to acid reflux from excessive stomach coming up into your esophagus.

certain foods can do this, excessive anxiety can cause your stomach to produce too much stomach acid

missing meals can do this as well.

stomach acid reducing medications can help decrease stomach acid.
