In brief: Stomach burning
An endoscopy cannot necessarily rule out Gerd, because it is possible to have Gerd without any visible findings on endoscopy.
Often after a negative endoscopy a trial of medications is given to see how your body responds. Otherwise, further testing may be necessary. Good luck.
