all clear apart from ph test which said i had reflux

whats worrying me now cause the meds is keeping the acid at bay i just have lots of burping and gas /wind comming up (is this a sied effect to ppis)

You need to ask for the endoscopy. I had acid reflux for 3 yrs and the doctor never send me for endoscopy until I asked for it.
