GERD?: Sounds like GERD as a primary choice. Gastritis would be a good secondary option for diagnosis. Have you tried treatment? If you’ve failed treatment, endoscopy may be in order to properly diagnose.

Functional GB disord: HPI--, Nausea is your main symptom, without reflux, or heartburn,Tums does not work..Not certain what tests were done to r/o GBD. I am assuming Gallstones were r/o w/ US Abdomen. Do HIDA Scan and EGD. My provisional Dx will be Functional GB disorder. A clinical diagnosis of functional gallbladder disorder requires the fulfillment of symptom-based diagnostic criteria & R/o organic disorder.
