I have had acid reflux for several yearsl. Priloscec held me for many years.  In the last two years it has gotten worse and  I have gone from 2 prevacid a day to 2  aciphex a day and now its worse again.  The heartburn and episgastric pain is horrible and the burping is constant.  Nothing helps.
I went to  the emergency room 2 weeks ago and they gave me a GI cocktail and nausea and pain med and it got better for about 48 hors and came back again,  They did a EKG and labs for the heart and it was good but wanted me to see a cardiologist to be on the safe side.  The symptoms are similar for cardiac and GERD.
I saw the cardiologist and he ordered a tread mill test and eckocardiogram.  I had the tread mill yesterday and will have the eckocardiogram next week.  Don't know when I will get the results.
My GI DR. has done a upper scope, put a camera in and results are normal.  I had a barium swallow test this morning.  The radiologist says that my food is staying in my esophagus to long and she see acid reflux. Something about contrictures and I can't remember the other word.  I shoud be hearing from my GI Dr in a few days but with the 4th coming up I figure it will be next week.
I gather that this means my esophagus needs to be stretched.  Anyone eles dealt with this?
