The definitive test for GERD is upper endoscopy or EGD, so without that we can only make an educated guess. There a other things (like ulcers, for example) that can cause the same symptoms, so it would be a good idea to get it checked out, but until then, avoid acidic/spicy foods, soda, coffee, alcohol

Also, any weight loss or trouble swallowing you must talk with an md!

Lastly avoid overingestionof NSAIDS such as Ibuprofen which I see you are taking.
