Acid reflux on an empty stomach?

Seriously affecting my morning workouts: gas or acid reflux in the mornings, before anything is eaten and only water has been drunk. WTF?

So I generally go to bed at 12 or 1 and have my last meal, which is small (salad, fruit salad, or veggie wrap) at about 1030, when I get home from work.
I wake up at 8, drink a few cups or water, and go to my workout, which is across town, for 930. I do my warmup fine, but about 5 minutes into my proper workout, I start burping, or feeling like I have to burp, which of course affects my activity and breathing, throwing everything else off (I do crossfit, in a group of people, under a clock).
How can I stop this problem? And why is it happening?
Note that after asking a few people about this, each recommended eating something. I tried that; it didn't work and just made me feel like I was gonna barf.
