In brief: R/O IBS With GERD

UNLIKELY from PROTONIX GERD symptoms nausea/reflux/abdominal pain /bloating.
You need a full exam and blood work. Especial screen for H pylori . Also stool screen x 3 for occult blood /parasite/hpylori . Empiric trial of Zantac vs nexium (esomeprazole) , if symptoms persist baseline EGD.. While you are getting these items checked out you should ditch to a gluten free high fiber diet .
