Unhappy Mystery Stomach Problem - please help :(

Hi there! I'm 18 f and I'm healthy. I exercise everyday. I'm 5'7 121lbs.

Last year, I suddenly felt as though I had indigestion or something so I took some mylanta which usually worked and it would't happen for another year or so. Afterwards, I got this really bad attack where my stomach felt really bloated and heavy and I kept burping and mylanta wouldn't work anymore. I've been to 2 different gastrologist and had 2 endoscopys both with normal results. Now every few weeks or so I experience it again.

Here are my symptoms:
Deep burping after even drinking water
Upper abdominal bloating
Upper abdominal tenderness
Gurgling stomach and esophagus
Occasional heart burn
Difficulty taking a deep breath or constant yawning (It feels as though my stomach is bloated it's taking space in my lung"
Feels like something is lodged in my diaphragm
Heart Palpitations (Occasionally)
Hiccups
Difficulty swallowing tablets or feeling like their stuck
Sternum pain

Sometimes I feel like I need to burp but it won't come up unless I flex my stomach.

I think I've tried every medication in existence from over the counter such as Mylanta, Zantac, Gaviscon, Tums to Pariet, Nexium, Moltilium, Tazac. I've given up. I've seen a naturopath and chiropractor and no one can fix my problem. I've missed so many days of school because of all these symptoms listed above. I thought I might have had a hiatal hernia but nothing was found in my endoscopys? I don't drink or smoke. I've had many blood tests, CT scan, xray, ultrasound. Doctors blame it on stress but I'm not stressed, especially as this problem started while I was on holidays.

Sorry, I know this is sort of long but I'm so over this problem. Please can someone help me.
