Silent reflux test

Guys

I've undergone a TAILORED BARIUM SWALLOW/FLURO where they passed thin & thick barium, barium pudding and barium coated cracker

It only showed some laryngeal penetration but I'm looking for a more exhaustive test to see if I have any silent reflux or food coming up from my stomach to my esophagus. I'm confused with so many tests available and would like an opinion here too apart from my doctor is suggesting

Thanks

Re: Silent reflux test

There is a range of PH tests that can be done to determine how much acid and the times of day it is coming up your esophagus. Most of these involve installing a monitor down your throat , thru your nose for a 24 hr period. Your doc can help you out with these. If you search this forum under ph testing you will find lots of subject threads on it.
