I started having heartburn at night 8 weeks ago.  It got worse and worse, and now I have it all night long, and they days are painful too.  I'm taking ginger juice, digestive enzymes, probiotics, aloe, I'm alittle better during the day, but the nights are the worst.  I even sleep in an adjustable bed, it doesn't help much.
My endoscopy showed no inflammation, no erosions, no ulcers.  Just a 'lax" LES.  Nexium makes me have more pain in my stomach.
What can be done for me?  I'm at a loss what to do.  I go back to the doctor on Monday.  What are my chances for getting better?  I had this 3 years ago and treated with natural stuff and got better, but the symptoms are alittle different now.  More heartburn, the last time was more stomach pain. 
Thank you.
