Welcome to Healing Well.
While a barium swallow can show reflux, it has to be liquid that comes up. you could have acid vapor and would need a PH study to show that. Also a manometry would show what your swallowing is like and what the LES pressure is.
Not everyone gets relief from any one PPI. Most people have to try a few different ones to get relief, but some of us never get relief from PPIs.
