Burping and reflux are often associated due to many reasons.  due to a weak lower oesophageal sphincter the pressure differential between the oesophagus and the stomach changes which is why burping often occurs after eating.  Some patients even learn To subconsciously help their symptoms through ‘supra-gastric belching’.   Supra gastric belching is when gas is belched from the oesophagus instead of the stomach.
