GERD, 23 years old. Nissen Didn't Work... Can't Skateboard...

Hello...My name is Daniel.
For the last 3 years I have had Acid Reflux Disease.
I am one of those people who got it out of nowhere.
I am only 23 years old.
One day I was fine, one day I had gerd all the sudden.
"I think it may have been brought on by heavy lifting."

I started getting constant heartburn, Heart palpitations and constant neck pain.
I started taking PPIs, which helped about 50%.
But I still had tons of symptoms.
I finally got surgery about a year ago (Nissen Fundo)
As soon as I got it I went off ppis, the surgery seemed to have worked
about 50% also...temporarily...

But here I am now, with all the same symptoms.
Back on PPIs.

Here are my symptoms...
almost constant heartburn
Constant feeling of uneasiness in stomach
constant neck pain
constant bloating
excersice intolerance.
weird squeezing feeling in stomach apon standing.

The most annoying thing about this is that I had to give up one
of my favorite things in life (Skateboarding)
jumping seems to REALLY bother my stomach...

Before this happened I could skate for hours every day
now I can only last about 5 minutes on a skateboard then I am done...
Its not even fun anymore...

Here is what happens when I try to skate.
Like I said, its the jumping that seems to bother my stomach, I can ride around fine.

Immediatly after I jump
I feel this weird sensation in my stomach, almost like I just got startled
it also feels a bit like squeezing.
It travels up to my neck and shoulders and seems to make my breathing impaired also.
Then I start feeling VERY tired and I have to stop.

I dont want to live like this for the rest of my life.

The weird thing is, this is only when I jump.
I am a drummer also, and thankfully I can play drums fine still even though its also a form of excersice.

I just wan to be able to skate bad...
Im aware gerd can be a lifelong condition but surely there has to be
something I can do to be able to skate again.

Im also trying to decide if I should try something new like the LYNX procedure...

Any help would be appreciated...
