GERD was really of symptom of Celiac Disease
I have had GERD and IBS for 20 years. I finally found a doctor who could properly diagnose me. After a biopsy of my small intestine I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. Now I fell light and my GERD is almost healed. 1 out of every 133 people have celiac disease. It took me 20 years. I hope this finds someone and helps them get a proper diagnosis. Please look at the Univer of Columia website and the Univer of Md website. It is under center for celiac research.
