If your doc hasn't checked you for the presence of H. pylori, that should be done. In addition, you can't stop PPI's 'cold-turkey.' It will cause rebound reflux which can be very debilitating. You have to 'wean' yourself off. If you didn't team a GERD-friendly diet with the PPIs you may not have gotten any overall relief. The meds will only tamp down the symptoms.

You may want to ask your doc to do further testing for GERD, and may also want to inquire about some testing for gallbladder issues, too. Symptoms of both problems can be very similar.
