  • Heartburn woudln't be relieved with a burp. Sounds like just gas, it can hurt when it's "stuck" - which would explain why you feel better after you burp. Could also be a hiatal hernia - my MIL has one and hurts before she burps.

  • Sounds like it. Have you tired any OTC heartburn remedies to see if they help? And if you're getting these symptoms often, you may want to see your doctor to make sure everything is okay in there. Your doc may recommend testing, diet changes, medication or any combination of the three.

  • Def gas.

    Warm coke seems to help you burp also and you can get it out.

  • It's just gas. Heartburn feels better, sometimes, after drinking milk, though not always.
