5 Month Old Fussy while Breastfeeding

My 5 month old has been getting fussy while breastfeeding. She will pull off 10-20 times during a feeding. Each time she will get fussy while on the breast, pull off, cry for a second, then want to latch on again. She is on reflux medicine so I don't think it is that. Any suggestions/thoughts on what it could be? My nerves are about shot and I am ready to start giving her formula if this persists!

When she does this has she been feeding for a minute or two? My daughter will do this also (2 1/2 mths). I have to use a nipple gaurd due to a fast letdown. When she does it i burp her and then she is fine.
