Reflux and a Normal Endoscopy

So I had my endoscopy today. It came back normal. Anyone else have a normal endoscopy but still have GERD/LPR?

Re: Reflux and a Normal Endoscopy

I have extremely severe reflux and have had two normal Endoscopies in the last several years. It took other testing to confirm my reflux.

Re: Reflux and a Normal Endoscopy

When I went to my GERD class they told us only 50% of the people with gerd get damage to there esophagus because you get heartburn but through out the day your saliva and gravity push the acid back down before it does damage. It's when you get night gerd is when damage happens.
