    Normal endoscopy but severe acid reflux

    I'm 23 years old. I started getting acid reflux after having anorexia for 1 year. After several months, the acid reflux healed, and I was able to eat anything I wanted. However, last January, the acid reflux came back due to stress. I got an endoscopy done last March, but it came out normal. Recently, my acid reflux has been getting worse due to stress from work, and almost any food gives me a problem (anything fried, oily, spicy, or acidic). Recently, even apples and sushi (because of the vinegar) have been giving me problems. My stomach starts gurgling, and I feel really hungry. 2 weeks ago, I drank 1 teaspoon of instant decaffeinated coffee, and I had an acidic taste in my mouth the whole day, and my stomach was hurting. I also noticed that I get full really easily, but after a few hours, my stomach starts making rumbling noises, like it's hungry. Could it be possible that I have a hiatal hernia? Should I get another endoscopy or do other tests, like pH monitoring or the barium test?

    Re: Normal endoscopy but severe acid reflux

    Hi, I has similar issues where my endoscopy came back clean time and time again and my PH test was clean as well. I finally had had enough and had more tests done. The impedence test was the only one that saw anything. Most of the doctors I went to just thought it was in my head. But I found out I had non acidic reflux. All the other tests only register acid so nothing was showing up. Anyways, I know your situation is different but I really think you should get more tests. At least the PH test, if your doctor doesn't suggest it then just say you really would like it bc u want to know. I was barely living before we found out what it was. It makes you so depressed ya know? so I get how frustrating it all is. The tests can only help really.
