Silent reflux?

My one month old baby gags and coughs and usually has wet burps. I thought i was colic at-first because he kept us up at night but am giving him colic drops and it doesn’t seem to work. His stomach gurls a lot and he licks his lips like he’s thirsty he been gaining a lot of weight so i dont know if this is reflux. But when he cries he calms downs and then suddenly scream cries. What should i do? And has anybody gone through this with their baby.

    Sounds like gas. Hold baby upright while feeding. Hold upright and burp for 20 min after feeding. Ask doctor about reflux. We were on Zantac for the first 6 months. Offer tummy time and bicycle kicks to help with gas. Also look into gas drops
