i finally got to see the gastro on Tuesday! we didn't really reach any kind of a conclusion at all, but he did have some ideas as to what it might be. He drew some blood and they're testing for some things like bacteria and other stomach problems, he also put me on a laxative because he said that since my bowel movements havn't been "normal" he said that there could be a problem in my intestines which could also be causing my acid and stomach problems so we'll see. I also wanted to ask everybody about anxiety disorders, because i'm curious to know if most of you had anxiety disorders before you got reflux, or if they came with the reflux?

I had anxiety for many years before I started having actual GERD, as in verfied via endoscopy. I have been on PPI's for a few years because my gastro said I was a super acid producer and I actually started having GERD after I was on PPI's so the problem has apparently increased. My anxiety likes to show itself in more of an upset stomach and bowel problems so I have learned to tell the difference over the years between anxiety related stomach issues and true GERD related problems.
