I think conducting further test with your MD or Gastro dr you should be able to find out more about your specific case. Meaning do the motility test, 24ph test, egd, and etc, that is if you have insurance.
I don't, we'll at least not anymore. I wish I could further test but only got limited test.
If you had a possible cause then you could target that cause by trying to solve it. I understand your frustration. I wish I could cure myself. I am still hopeful. I am trying some new things, so I will keep everyone posted. In the back of my head I am thinking Linx if things don't get better for me. I am just going to pay out of pocket if I have to. For now, I can only try to control the symptoms.
Diagnosed with GERD/IBS in 2007. However, my symptoms are most similar to LPR. I am still unsure of the IBS diagnosis.
Currently I am taking a natural approach to my symptoms since July 2011.
