Burping can be due to a variety of stomach/esophagus problems sometimes related to HIV treatment but most often due to other factors (such as H pylori infection of the stomach, air swallowing, smoking, carbonated beverages). An evaluation by your HIV specialist and/or stomach specialist is recommended. KH
