GERD,LPR,esophageal: You still may have GERD as well as laryngopharangeal retlux, esophageal motility disorder,post nasal drip. I recommend trying antireflux meds like omeprazole,famotidine,carafate. Avoid spicy,greasy,gassy foods,aspirin,ibuprofen,naproxen,caffeine,alcohol,nicotine,large meals. Take simetiicone 1/2 hr after meals to reduce gas. If not improved, consult a gastroenterologist and, possibly an ENT
