Constant Burping

Hello doctor, I am a 16 year old kid, and for a few months now I have had some troubles with my stomach. I feel strange feelings in my lower chest, right at the bottom of the chest cavity. These discomforts usually go away after I drink some water and burp. This is what is troubling me, why am I doing this? I am a very worry filled person and would like to know if this could be something serious. With these burps I have also had strange feces...they come out like little pebbles almost, not neccesarily constipation. But as of late I have been drinking a lot of water and my feces has started to become more normal. I also have nausea sometimes when I later have to burp after drinking a lot of water. A response would be very much appreciated. Thank you.

Hi,
You have symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux disease and constipation.
PPI like prilosec may be taken for relief of GERD.
For constipation, high fiber diet, fiber supplements and plenty of fluids would be helpful.
