I do see your point. Give the maalox a go- the sour burp means that gas is coming from the stomach and if you take the sour part, a lot of gas and fluid is coming up- enough to irritate your esophagus. Here is some information about GERD:
Heart burn is caused by the reflux of acidic secretions from the stomach. It is often worse during (and sometimes after) pregnancy because of the increase intraabdominal pressure. Other causes include relaxation of the lower esophageal sphincter (also common in pregnancy, but for some reason more prominent other some people than others) and hiatal hernia.
Treatment with the H2 blockers (such as pepcid- which you now can buy over the counter) and medications such as maalox and mylanta. If this does not work, you may need prescription H2 blockers or proton pump inhibitors (PPI). Rarely do you need surgery (may be needed in the case of a hiatal hernia)
Heartburn is also called GERD (gastro-esophageal reflux disease). Other symptoms include regurgitation, difficulty swallowing and even chronic cough.
Common foods that can worsen reflux symptoms include
drinks with caffeine or alcohol
fatty and fried foods
garlic and onions
tomato-based foods, like spaghetti sauce, salsa, chili, and pizza
If you smoke, stop. Avoid foods and beverages that worsen symptoms. Lose weight if needed. Eat small, frequent meals. Wear loose-fitting clothes. Avoid lying down for 3 hours after a meal. Raise the head of your bed 6 to 8 inches by securing wood blocks under the bedposts. Just using extra pillows will not help.
If you have any black stool, bloody stool, severe burning, vomiting fevers or other concerns, you need to see a physician right away.
