Brief Answer:
Nausea

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome,

People can have nausea during a heart attack. But generalized belching and indigestion on an ongoing basis, without other symptoms of a heart attack such as chest pain or pressure and shortness of breath, is less likely to be from a heart attack.

Are you concerned that you are having a heart problem?

Have you tried medication for possible reflux, such as Zantac 150 mg twice a day (or 2 at once) or a proton pump inhibitor such as Nexium?
