    Hi I'm in similar position in addition I have lump in my chest too. It feels like I've swallowed nuts and bolts and it's lodged in throat and chest. I've tried several PPIs and nothing has helped either. Endoscopy showed gastritis, nothing in esophagus or throat. GI says gerd, ent says LPR. Both say to keep up with PPIs. I stopped my ranitidine at night as I felt the lump got worse after swallowing it so just on morning ppi now. Mine gets worse with each meal so by late afternoon ( my last meal) it's very bad. I get impression since nothing is showing in tests that doctors think I'm imagining it. Going to try naturopathic approach next. Conventional medicine is just throwing PPIs at it. Good luck.

      I've tried Dexilant 60, Aciphex 20, Protonix 40 and most OTC ones. Currently just in Protonix 40 in the morning. I'm thinking of gradually getting off of it while adding in natural remedies like aloe vera, no sugar, etc to see if anything helps.

    Hi Lashae40308

    I have the same problem and unfortunately it has been with me for almost 2 years now. Test never show any signs so I just take PPI in the morning and try and watch what I eat and drink. Just recently I have stopped having milk in tea and cereals and I have changed to soya which I read may be of some help, too early to confirm whether this will help but I am hopeful as I have been told that milk is not good gor GERD sufferers. Also trying not to feel down/depressed really is beneficial although not always easy. It looks as though there are many of us sufferers out there who cannot get total relief but we can only keep trying.

    All the best
