I have had 3 PH tests, 2 off medication and 1 on.

One came back with somewhat high reflux activity, while the other two came back borderline high (off meds), and normal (on meds). In all three tests I had significantly low symptom index/correlation (50%, 13% and 14%) in terms of feeling pain coinciding with reflux events. This has led doctors to rule me as a non-candidate for sugery, since it may not be acid reflux ( I guess...?)

Just curious, anyone else have the PH test? What were your symptom indexes like, and results? Just trying to figure out if others with real reflux have had similar results to mine or if I am an anomoly. Thanks!@

I have had a few of them. My first was double the highest my GI office had ever seen. I don't know how they measure theirs, but they said the highest prior to me was 200 something and mine was over 400. I never looked at the other reports as they were just a pre-op thing before my redos.

I had a pH test (96 Hour BRAVO study) in August and the first 48 hours showed no reflux (nor did I feel any symptoms) and the second 48 hours showed "more reflux episodes than noted in the first 48 hours indicative of some component of moderate reflux disease". I got the results in the mail and they did not include numbers such as what Bill has mentioned. They also did not includes symptom indexes. I wish my doctor would have called to explain it but bottom line is I have reflux which I already knew. Hope this helps in some way.

Take care,
