Have air bubble like feeling in stomach and dry mouth. Had gallbladder removed. Reason?

Hi, I am a 30year old woman weigh about 82kgs and measure about 167cm tall. I have 2 kids 11 & 3. Since having the boys I have worried about pains & things in my body incase they are life threatening. I had my gallbladder taken out nearly 6years ago due to stones. I had a colonoscopy & endoscopy in august 2011 and a abdominal ultrasound the same month. All come back completely normal. Blood tests are always normal and similar in comparison to past tests. Yet I keep getting this air bubble like feeling in my stomach which is uncomfortable, I get discomfort around right side of abdomen & in back ( I am told its probably muscular) I ve had urine tests that perfectly clear. I do get reflux , burping. Do I need to be concerned that I have something wrong with stomach or another organ . The other thing bothering me is a dry mouth feeling coming down from nasal passage with pressure across face. Thanks in advance for any advice

Gastroenterologist 's  Response
Hello! Thanks for putting your query in HCM. I am a Gastroenterologist (DM).

You are having acid peptic disease with reflux symptoms

For this take a proton pump inhibitor like rabeprazole and a prokinetic agent like domperidone. Also take mild antispasmodic agent like mebeverine.

Few life style changes:
1.Avoid fatty meals
2. Don't lie down soon after meals for at least half hour
3.Take small and frequent meals, instead of full meals at a time
4. Wear loose clothes
5. If you are overweight or obese do weight reduction with dieting and exercise

I hope I have answered your query and this will help you. If you have any further query I will be happy to answer that too. Remain in touch and get-well soon.
