The hyocyamine is normally used to treat irritable bowel syndrome, and it looks like this is what your doctors are suspecting.  Upper endoscopy and ultrasound were noted to be not-revealing.

There are several more specialized diagnoses that you may consider.  This would include gastroparesis as well as esophageal motility disorders.  Tests to consider would be a gastric emptying scan (looking for gastroparesis) as well as a 24-hr pH study with esophageal motility studies (which would look for both GERD and esophageal motility disorders).  

If these tests are negative, then treatment for irritable bowel disease should be optimized.  I would discuss these aforementioned tests with your personal physician or obtain another GI evaluation.

Followup with your personal physician is essential.
