I know anxiety can make us feel un well , it can make us dizzy and it can also cause digestive problems that can result in trapped gas causing the need to burp 

I know you have been to emergency over your problems and it is reassuring they gave you the all clear but even if you have already I would go and speak to my Doctor about this , not because that means it will be anything serious but maybe they could give you something to help or talk through with you what is making you feel so bad and maybe refer you for some Counselling as well as reassuring you physically you are fine :-)
