Great difficulty burping

This is a bit embarrassing, but I have great difficulty burping. It starts when I wake up and usually lasts most of the day. I have to literally force myself to burp and it can be uncomfortable at best, and painful at worst. The problem seems to be worst when I'm undergoing excessive stress, but it also appears at other times. I've tried maximum strength liquid antacids as well as Gas-X pills. Is this a common problem? What might cause it? Friends have advised me to stop drinking soda (I might have one or two cans a day); would this help? What about coffee? I have 2 cups a day; could this contribute to the problem? Are there any other dietary considerations? I've seen a doctor who has ordered some tests, but I would welcome any other advice or suggestions.
