Can bloating and a feeling of an air-filled stomach be a symptom of acid reflux or GERD?
The feeling of gas can be a symptom of reflux, but sudden or unexplained or severe bloating can be a concern that should be looked at by a doctor. Any symptom that is sudden onset like this and that lasts for any significant length of time should be checked by a doctor as soon as possible. The Internet is a good resource for finding general information on conditions, but only an actual in-person examination can correctly diagnose an issue.

give us a break with this 'dr' bs. if there was one worth his weight in gold we would be going to them. we come to the web site to hear what the hell it is. we know we can go to a dr! good grief.
I'm sorry but there is absolutely no way to diagnose someone's symptoms online. I did answer the question which was asking if bloating could be due to reflux but realistically it can be due to many things and it would be irresponsible at best to not suggest a trip to the doctors. Suppose I said sure it's gotta be due to reflux and in fact it winds up being ovarian cancer that someone ignores? I'm certainly sorry if I've offended you by suggesting someone seek medical care.
