Have you had any of your results back yet?
Hey. Ive had all my results back. Basically when Im on the PPI I have no acid reflux but off the PPI (impedence test) I have increased acid exposure to my esophagus (6.6%, anything >4.2% he said was abnormal). I also had a few "slightly acidic" and two alkaline reflux events during the test. Doc now wants me to go back on PPIs for 4 months and see where Im at. If I still have the pain wants me to repeat Impedence on the PPI to see if my acid reflux is replaced with non-acid reflux causing symptoms. This will determine if he recommends surgery or therapeutic means to ease symptoms (low dose anti-depressent, etc.)
I think the persistance of pain we get on PPIs might be non-acid reflux as it feel slightly different than traditional acid reflux maybe? Who knows.
