About 4 or 5 months ago I started having very minor acid reflux symptoms. As weeks went by, they've gotten worse and worse. Eventually my sypotomes go to the following:

Acid reflux 

Shortness of breath

Hard time swallowing (not good or liquids) just my saliva 

Chest pains(middle of my chest) more of chest tightness. 

Back soreness from shoulder blade to shoulder blade

Nasal drip

Soar throat 

I have tried 3 separate acid reflux medications, nothing worked. After taking the last medication twice a day for 30 days with no improvement, I underwent an upper endoscopy. The GI said everything looked great. BUT I FEEL AWEFUL.  I started a liquid diet because I read on another forum large chucks of food can stick to the  esphoagus. 

This seemed to have lightened the systems but I still have the same issues (just not as severe). This is absolutely brutal. I have looked all over the internet on why this is happening and I've seen some people have the same concern. But no answers. Please help me! 

Thank you

      I went on an a******e d**t - took ppi but motilium helped the most

      You take before food and it pushes everything faster through your system

      I had chest pain but they told me it was costcochronditis not sure of spelling and shoulder pain but mostly acid horrible taste in my mouth and heartburn

      They told me bile acid reflux and GERD 

      Eat small meals 

      Raise head of bed

      Don't eat after 6

      No sugar - coffee - fried - fat 

      Read acid watchers diet helped
