ABOUT A YEAR AGO AFTER EATING AT A LONG JOHN SILVERS I GOT STOMACH PAINS ON THE WAY HOME WITH THE FEELING OF WANTING TO VOMIT.EVERSENCE THEN 5 TO 6 DAYS A WEAK I GET A BLOATED FEELING IN MYUPPER STOMACH SOMETIMES WITH THE FEELING OF NEEDING TO VOMIT. WHEN THE NAUSEA SUBSIDES I BURP ALOT.THE STRANGE THING IS IT DOESNT HAPPEN MUCH WHEN DRIVING ALONE BUT WHEN SOMEONE RIDES WITH ME IT ALMOST HAPPENS. AND RIDING WITH SOMEONE ELSE IS IMPOSSIBLE. HAD AN UPPER GI LAST JUNE CAME BACK NEGATIVE . NO MEDICATION PRILOSEC,NEXIUM ETC. HELP. ANY HELP WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED......

Maybe some of this is related to fear and anxiety. Since you are having these feelings often now, you could possibly be afraid of  embarrassing yourself around others.

Hi and welcome to the forum.
It is highly possible that Sassy is on to something as stress and anxiety can play a part into our gerd flares.
I was wondering if u meant that u had issues if someone else drove?
In that case it is possible u have a  bit of vertigo.

Have u also tried following the lifestlye changes suggested with this condition?
We have it listed in our Health Pages here on MedHelp.

Is it possible that u might have another condition that is causing some of ur symptoms?
I have a hiatal hernia....I also have a thyroid problem that has cause a weight gain that I am sure is affecting me and my gerd.

The meds u mentioned above are PPI's...some times these do not work for some people...ask ur dr about trying a histamine blocker like pepcid.( the rx is stronger that the OTC meds)

Keep us posted on ur progress
