See GI specialist: If you have been taking a high dose PPI (pantoprozole) and an H2 blocker (ranitidine) with persistent symptoms, your dr may want to have you take the PPI twice a day and H2 blocker every night, However, if persists you should see a GI specialist for a possible EGD to visualize your esophagus and stomach. Avoid caffeine, alcohol, other irritating foods, and eating before bedtime. Take Care!

May need endoscopy: You are taking a Proton Pump Inhibiter and a H2Blocker.And still have symptoms.I will suggest you consult a Gastroenterologist and may need endoscopy to find out why you have symptoms of burning.As it may be an Ulcer in stomach or esophagitis Meanwhile avoid the foods which make your symptoms worse and avoid citrus fruits,mint,fatty foods,alcohol,carbonated drinks,and stop smoking if you do

See GI doctor: This is a case calling for a specialist's help. You may be a high-acid producer, every severe reflux , be infected with H pylori, or have another disease.
