I did, indeed, have the barium swallow test and it did indicate that I was refluxing.
But the GI said that since my endoscopy showed that my esophagus is normal I might not have acid reflux??
The GIs are confusing!!! Why do the barium swallow if you're not going to take it seriously??
I am not taking the medication these days (it's been 3 days). I DO reflux, but maybe it's not ACID. Maybe the proton pump inhibitors were making me worse, by shutting down the acid needed for digestion.
Or maybe they just weren't working because I have a huge constipation problem which, if it never gets addressed, will continue to cause me to reflux. FG
