My first word is a word of reassurance for you

Need not get scared

Permanent solution to reflux depends on the severity - After looking to your reports I feel you should wait before getting any surgery planned

What are the current medications you are taking ?

In the mean time follow these tips :

1] Avoid spicy, fermented meals
2] Do not have heavy meals
3] Avoid smoking and alcohol
4] Wear loose clothes
5] Do not stoop
6] Do not lift heavy weights
7] Raise the head end of your bed
8] If Obese lose weight
9] If under stress - Manage stress levels by meditation and exercise

Pain in finger and back are not related though some patients of reflux with posterior wall gastritis complain of backache which is rare

Get back to me with the medications and will guide you accordingly

Wishing you a healthy life ahead
