Tried Multiple PPI's and H2 Blockers. Tried Antacids. Nothing completely stops the gas, the acid I would say is reduced 80-90% at times. But it feels like I'm burping up acidic gas even when the acid isn't coming up.
Tried diet changes - for 1 year have only eaten grilled chicken, fish, rice, steamed vegetables, water. No soda, junk food, fried food, or fatty foods.
Tried antidepressants, anti-anxiety drugs in 2008 after Doctor said it may be psychological - which I don't believe. Drugs didn't help at all. I'm stressed out and upset from these symptoms not from anything else in my life.
Can you help me at all from what tests I should make the doctors order to what this could be?
