In brief: Anti-reflux surgery

You are experiencing medically refractory reflux disease meaning the medicines are not working for you and the natural anti-reflux valve at the top of your stomach has failed.
Fortunately minimally invasive anti-reflux surgery, usually with a nissen fundoplication (and hiatal hernia repair too if necessary) can cure you and take you off meds forever. See a surgeon that specializes in reflux.
