I have a simular problem. I have a bad taste in the mouth and at times, I burp up a mouth full of saliva. It's the strangest thing. If I press down on my throat or chest I burp a very strange sound. Its like a very deep burp that comes up with little effort to no effort at all, just a gentle push on my chest or the side of my throat brings it up.
