Hearty, I was thinking of your gall bladder when I asked that question. Sometimes ultra sounds do not always show up a bad gall bladder. So they take a small sample of the bile when they do the endoscopy if necessary. The Nexium wouldn't offer relief!
The fact that the Nexium seems to be helping you is a really good thing! I would suggest that you follow your Dr.'s advice on this and continue to take it, along with suggestions that have been given on this forum, like reducing your carbs, watching for the triggers like onions, spicey foods and those types of things. Make sure you never lay flat, so elevate the head of your bed at night. If after a trial run all is good, then discuss a trial of no Nexium and if after all these other changes perhaps you will find yourself - pill free!!
Good Luck and My Best Wishes to You!!
Hugs, Teri :)
