GERD, bouts of severe stomach pain, excessive salivation, hiccups. Done endoscopy and colonoscopy. Hernia or gallbladder issue?

I have frequent bouts of severe stomach pain accompanied by excessive salivation and hiccups. This usually occurs every 2-3 weeks and lasts from several hours to a whole day. I have had a endoscopy that my doctor diagnosed as GERD about 7 years ago. I am 52 and I also had a colonoscopy last year that came back clean. These attackshave been ongoing for almost 12-13 years. Can it be gallbladder? Hernia? I need some relief!

HI
Thank for asking to HCM
This would not be the diseases as you thought about, it could be GERD only could be inadequately treated, beside this the possibility of Helicobacter should be rule out, as long as the question of GERD is concern start taking the the PPI (Omeprazole) 40 mg at evening time at least for 6 week, if the test for Helicobacter turned positive then the treatment of this should be started accordingly for that discus it with doctor, keep your stress level very much low have nice day.
