I had 2 endoscopies which showed mild irritation. I had a gastric empything test, a chest x ray, an ultra sound which all showed nothing. I have a few theories on my GERD. I have always had some digestive issues but they were minor. The major issues came about
duing a very stressful time in my life where I was not watching my diet, smoking cigartettes, and partying. I was 22. I believe that when I was put on PPIs, it helped with the reflux but messed with my digestive system. I believe I developed some IBS symptoms because of the PPI use in addition, and my doctor believes this could be the case. Once I figured out what to eat and decreased my PPI, things got better.
