    I am experiencing upper left back pain, upper abdominal pain under the left breast, and frequent burping. What could be causing this?

    I have had similar symptoms when I have gas in addition to my reflux. When this happens I usually take Simethicone (e.g. Gas-X) and this really helps. But, it's important to know that your symptoms are often found with heart problems as well so you should have that ruled out by a doctor just to be sure. Plus, before taking any medication prescribed or over the counter you should talk to your doctor and let him know all medications you are taking.
