    What is involved with the 24 hour monitor? Seems like that might help to figure out what to do about the reflux.

      I can understand your not wanting to have that done. Doesn't sound too good to me either.

      As for doubling meds or pain meds, decide which would be the best for your.

      Maybe look at what you eat. I used to take meds and stopped to go the route of seeing what triggered the reflux. Works for me most of the time.
