The only symptom of Gerd that I have is continuous

The only symptom of Gerd that I have is continuous burping throughout the day for over a month. I have taken Prilesec all of that time and doesn't seem to help. Is there a disease that has only burping causing the problem? Should I have a endoscopy or Upper GI? Thank you..

Sorry doc, I m a bit scared right now. I ve been having some odd non-specific symptoms and I keep worrying about cancer. I haven t been dx with anything malignant as of now, btw. Also, I have GERD and IBS. How sick would advanced cancer make a person? Advanced as in has spread to the liver, lungs, and bones. I was able to do 45 minutes of intense cardio today (burned ~600 calories) and I feel good when I m moving or being active. I only feel fatigued when I m inactive. I ve had some intermittent nausea for almost two weeks as well as a lot of belching, and my appetite s been weird/reduced for one week. I m having dull pain all over my body, including my abdomen, left hand, legs, knees, and feet. I ve also been feeling really out of it sort of, like I m really not all there. I had a brain CT two weeks ago - normal, and my blood work was fine except for eosinophilia (1.4). I m getting an ultrasound on Monday and new blood work as well, and I will continue to talk to my doc about this, but does this seem like it could be advanced cancer? How would that present? What could eosinophilia mean?

Hi, I have a 4 year old who woke up in the middle of the night 2 nights ago and threw up. He only threw up once and when he woke for the day he was completely fine. Didn t act like he didn t feel good, had an appetite and energy. I thought it was just a 24 hour bug or something that came and went quickly. However the next morning about 2am he woke up and threw up again. Same exact scenario. He didn t get sick last night but he is now burping and passing gas and it smells TERRIBLE. I have consulted with a triage nurse and they don t seem to think too much of it. However, me being his mom I know something isn t right. After googling, all his symptoms lean toward GERD. Do you think this is the case?
