Chest Xray , spriometry, Nexium

Detailed Answer:
Hi there,
Thanks for posting in HCM.
I am Dr.Barani and I am pleased to assist you.

I would suggest the following tests -

A chest Xray and a spriometry.
If both these tests are normal, then GERD is a possibility.
GERD is possible even if heartburn is not there.
If a course of Nexium provides relief(i.e 40mg Once Daily 30min before breakfast for 10 days), that itself is diagnostic of GERD.

I hope that answers your query.
Let me know if you have any more questions.
Regards,
Dr.Barani
