Thanks for the replies, I'll answer them both at once. Treatments I have tried include CBT, hypnotherapy, vitamin d3 supplements, 3 reflux diets, manuka honey, aloe vera, pH 8.8 water, excercises, 5 different PPI/H2 Blocker meds, 2 different antidepressants, multivitamins and lifestyle mods like watching when I drink water. For the record, nobody has seen a hernia in me so far, and I have horrible anxiety. My symptoms began during a stressful November of 2012, and 2013 hasn't been much better for me. I don't know if stress itself is causing my problems.
Officially my doctors don't believe me but they put me down for a dual-probe (I hope) pH probe anyway because I pushed for it. I'd consider Linx only if it 100% cures LPR; I'm praying for a cure, not a control measure. Since my symptoms can't be controlled by reflux- preventatives, and since they change every so often, could they be from something other than LPR? Maybe I just have a sore ' burning' throat from clearing it a lot, which I notice more when I belch..? Just a desperate idea really, but...
EDIT: Even just now in the last hour, Gaviscon Advance and Cimetidine have failed to stop my burning throat sensation. Both meds are pretty fast acting, so they usually would've had an effect by now.
