Burping up a little bit of food every meal GERD

Some background details for you. I am a 23 year old male. Diagnosed with gerd last November after an endoscopy showed signs of inflammation. I have also been to the doctors countless times and have numerous tests. I've suddenly become quite the hypochondriac.

Recently I have had an unpleasant tightness in my throats and constant regurgitation of food after meals and before bed. Anxiety is surely not helping. I struggle to find relief from burping.

I am seeing my Gi doc next week and have a scheduled appointment at the Mayo Clinic in September. I've considered the possibility of having surgery. Either LNF or linx. Leaning towards linx. Has anyone had an experience with either of these. I'm desperate. It's been real up and down for over a year now and when it's bad it is bad. Thanks

    Also forgot to meantion. I was on 40mg omeptazole for the longest time. Recently switched to Protonix and that's when the tightness got worse so I am on 20mg Prilosec in the am and Zantac before dinner.

    I would try looking at diet first. Probiotics and digestive enzymes can help. The secret is to find out why your digestive system is not working properly. I had LNF and have regretted it as it's really messed up my system.

      Since the morning after the operation I have had crippling diarrhea every day and I still have reflux. It works for some people but is not always successful.

      I really wish I had spent more time trying other remedies first. It is a well documented tale that reflux is very often due to too little stomach acid which is where apple cider vinegar and digestive enzymes help.

    I would not go for surgery either, you are too young, think about it after 30 if meds can't keep it at bay
