I have recently been diagnosed with GERD (2 weeks ago) and have been on ppi for 2 weeks no relief from my symptoms. My symptoms are difficulty swallowing solids, excess mucous in throat, sensation of food coming back up after eating. I also recently have noticed a ringing in my ears. I have had an EGD which found reflux esophagitis and ulcer, barium swallow which was normal. At a loss for what to do next. I'm wondering if anyone else has had symptoms like mine dispite treatment?View Thread
