Reflux: This could still be reflux of acid into your lower esophagus. How were you tested for H. Pylori? You may need anti-reflux medicine or an endoscopy. I would talk with your Doctor about these options.

Gastritis?: Possible excess acid in stomach, which needs to be explored by your PCP, to find the cause.
