    I've often heard the 2 can go hand in hand - many ppl with acid refux may also have a small hiatal hernia. I believe I may have both. Perhaps you do, too.

    Firstly i would advise you to drink WARM water first in the morning with a tablespoon of Acv. Instead of all the meds your dr is providing you with try sipping bakong soda with warm water whenever you get heartburn. The proton inhibitors has ruined your stomach. On too long. Change your diet. Look for mediterean diet.

    I have a lot of your same symptoms plus a list of others lol.  I was just diagnosed via endoscopy with gastritis and GERD after biopsy results came back. It sucks but I found my burping is better if I drink warm green tea first thing in the morning. Also I’ve cleaned up my diet a bit and that seems to be helping too. I try to stay away from spicy stuff and greasy food.
