I have been seeing a GI for 2 years now, and my symptoms remain basically the same. Instead of getting a feeling of acid coming up from my stomach, I sart with an ache in my throat, then my esophagus and then in the breastbone area. These symptoms stop within a few minutes of going to bed at night. I do get an ache half way between my naval and my breastbone at night. Unlike most people who have acid reflx or regurgitation my symptoms remain most of the day and are not affected by meals. In fact having a meal almost always makes me feel better.
I have tried all the PPIs, Zantac, AcipHex,Dexilant, Sucralfate and Hyoscyamine, and they havn't helped. I have had an Upper GI, an Ultra Sound and an Endoscopy.
If anyone in the group knows of someone with similar symptoms, I would really appreciate it if you would let me know.
