What type of test did Dr. Kaufman perform on you. I'm new to this forum and a long time sufferer of reflux. I too feel as if my LES and UES Don't function in harmony with each other but my manometries haven't shown this. As a matter of fact most of my testing haven't been real impressive for acid reflux, only non-acid reflux. But I continue to have all the symptoms of reflux such as burning, worsening of my asthma extreme burping and LPR. I'm also on a very strict diet which is awful! I am considering surgery as I'm so tired of this controlling my life. I have Dr. Kaufman's book and have tried some of her tricks but I can honestly say If I venture away from bread, turkey, salads, unseasoned fish and chicken, decaf tea & water I will suffer. I hate this too!
