Been on Nexium (esomeprazole) 40mg daily for 2 weeks and it didn't help at all, still burp frequently after meal, acid in chest, early fullness, raw throat in AM :(?

In brief: Causes of GERD

GERD(movement of stomach contents into esophagus) can result from: inappropriate relaxation of lower esophageal sphincter, gastroparesis (sluggish stomach emptying, partial gastric outlet obstruction), ineffective esophageal peristalsis, inadequate salivary production, regurgitation of non-acid material (which Nexium (esomeprazole) can't fix).
Investigation is key--have you had EGD, pH testing, pregnancy check?
