Hi,
Thanks for writing your query.
After reading your post, it seems that your symptoms are due to gastritis resulting in excess gas production.

I would advise that you should take an antacid like Omeprazole 40mg once a day before meals along with Domperidone 30mg for relief. A probiotic will have added benefits.
Eat light meals prepared under hygienic conditions. Avoid spicy and oily foods.

I hope this is helpful to you.
Thanks.
