If you are suffering reflux a 24hr ph monitoring test will confirm this. I had it done to determine whether my reflux was sufficient to warrant surgery.
I should warn you that its not that pleasant. They stick a tube down your nose and get it positioned to measure the acid. I carried a walkman like device for 24hr and then the results are analyzed. It confirmed I had reflux but not enough for surgery.
I am taking a high dosage of PPI every day, plus other medications as required. I do this whilst very carefully managing what I eat and especially drink so as not to aggrevate the condition. If I wanted to lead what some people would call a 'normal' life, then I would suffer reflux all the time. It also inspired me to lose 20lbs which has been a big benefit and everyone tells me how good I look.
Unfortunately having reflux means that I cannot do a lot of the things that I would like to do, but that's okay because I would rather be pain free that ean something that I probably shouldn't be eating anyway.

You need to have some tests done to get to the bottom of this problem. Have you had an endoscopy??

Im sorry you are having such a hard time
