GERD sx w/ Tx: What medications are you on? If on a PPI ( omeprazloe) can add a H2 blocker (famotidine) or visa versa. Keep a diary to see what foods trigger your GERD, you may have food sensitivity and should avoid those food. Also at the time of EGD were you checked for eosinophlic esophagitis- an allergic/ food immune issue w/ similar symptoms or bile reflux ( check for bile salts in gastric juice. F/U w/GI
