Several tests prove i don't have acid reflux. Nexium, (esomeprazole) the acid reflux drug, is the only thing that can manage my ibs-like symptoms. Any idea why?

In brief: Nexium (esomeprazole) is for reflux

First of all Nexium (esomeprazole) is used for acid reflux and not for ibs.
Secondly we do not know what tests you had and what your symptoms are but if you are symptom free with Nexium (esomeprazole) you probably are being treated for acid reflux and not for ibs symptoms i suggest you discuss with your treating physician or gastroenterologist about your condition and treatment.
