Hi thanks for your question

Stone in Gall bladder are known for acid peptic disease, but there are other causes for stomach problems.
The two common causes for GERD are H pylori infection of stomach and second being the hiatus hernia (protrusion of stomach into chest through loose esophageal opening)
Get your EGD done
Commonly called as endoscopy) done to find out the causes of GERD
Treatment of GERD depends upon the cause. Treat the underlying g cause ,GERD will disappear and you don’t have continue the medicine life long.
The side effects of rabiperazole and domperidome have very less side effect,and it is not necessary that all side effect will appear in all individual.
The side effects of rabiperizole are;
Sore throat
Most common side effects of Domperidone are;
Abdominal cramps
Dry mouth
Altered menstrual cycles.
The stucking of something in the throat is side effect of Rabiperizole.
