Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini, Gastroenterologist and I am pleased to answer your question.

Persisting burping and feeling something stuck in your throat are all symptoms of acid reflux disease.

The swollen stomach could be just a dyspeptic symptom.

Take medications like prilosec for relief.

You may require tests like upper GI endoscopy and ultrasound scan of the abdomen for evaluation.

For anemia and pica, have your hemoglobin checked and get your stool test done.
You may require iron supplements.

I hope that answers your question.
