Followup on my post. Had my endoscopy done yesterday. I was really suprised how easy it was in my case. I think having no tonsils might have helped, but it seems pretty quick in and out. I did have the numbing spray and awake sedation. The results were good, no problems in stomach or anywere else except a few white bumps on the esophagus. They will be doing a biopsy on that to check for allergys. I am glad it over with. Not much soreness or bloating.
As far as my gerd, the syptoms have seemed to decrease a lot. The pain in my chest has finally disappeared. Staying on the low acid diet, taking fiber pills and probiotics, and the daily prilosec seems to have done the trick. Now I have to figure out how to wean myself off the ppi's and keep on the diet.
