Hi - started with acid reflux a few months ago. Had an endoscopy which revealed mild gastritis. On Ezomprazole now and it has really helped though it hasnt got rid of it totally. Im now left with symptoms which come and go such as sore throat, sore tube, throat clearing, some acid sometimes, etc. I am due to go back to the doctors this Friday and would like to ask for the Barium Swallow and 24 Hour PH tests. Can my doctor refer me for these or does he have to refer me to the hospital for assessment first? Also which department conducts these tests - ENT or a different one? I am assuming after I have had these done I will find out if my LPR is working correctly and also how much stomach acid i am producing? if these are clear will they put it down to stress as there is no medical reason for the reflux???? thanks x
