In brief: See G.I. Doctor

Reflux of acid and food does not indicate that the anti acid, in this case nexium, (esomeprazole) is the culprit.
The food indicates a mechanical problem of competancy of the sphincter mucsle between the stomach and the esophagus. It is necessary to see a gastroenterologist to have this problem evaluated.
