Thanks for the query.

The described symptoms can be due to gastroesophageal reflux disease, hiatal hernia or gall bladder disease. All of these can cause bloating, burping or pain in abdomen after eating.

Try raising the head of your bed about four inches with blocks. It also might help to avoid eating or drinking for two hours before you lie down. To help control the stomach acid, one should not drink alcohol or drinks with caffeine in them, or eat chocolate or spicy or greasy foods. Also take some antacid but if the symptoms are severe, then you may need drugs like proton pump inhibitors.

You need to get some investigations done to confirm the diagnosis. These include upper GI endoscopy. Gall bladder disease can be ruled out by ultrasound abdomen and HIDA scan. You can get these done.

Mucus in the throat and mouth occur due to congestion of blood vessels located in these areas. The congestion is as a result of allergies, irritants or infections. Irritants could include external ones such as dust, pollens and so on; while reflux gastric secretions/acid can form XXXXXXX irritants.

Hope this answers your query. If you have additional questions or follow up queries then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your queries.
