If all tests are 'normal' including infection with h.Pylori, then, think about 'functional dyspepsia'. Dyspepsia is epigastric discomfort following meals. It is the cause of symptoms in 60 % of patients. Life style changes such as loosing weight, avoidance of large meals, smoking, alcohol, caffeine, chocolate, fatty food, citrus juice, and nsaids ( Motrin ) may prevent gerd . Do continue nexium (esomeprazole).
