As Joe said, there are many on the forum with atypical symptoms. My biggest symptom was out of control asthma. My lungs were very bad and my family doc and asthma doc both were confident that my reflux was creating the problem.
My GI doc, on the other hand, thought my reflux wasn't bad enough to be causing the problem or to indicate surgery.
After four long years my GI doc finally conceded that a couple big reflux episodes a day could be enough to get my lungs irritated. This, after my family doc sent me directly to a surgeon, because he'd had enough of my GI doc's foot dragging.
Long story short, I had the surgery three years ago and my within about two and a half months post-op my lungs were much, much improved.
Joe has offered excellent advice. Get your stress under control, watch your diet carefully, and see if you can find a different PPI that you can tolerate better.
Glad you've joined the forum. There is a lot of support and understanding to be found here.
Very best wishes,
