By the term acid reflux i can understand that acid from stomach refluxes back. yes its better to go for endoscopy as tablets are not releving the reflux disease. even you can go for gelusil MPS syrup which will help u more.

Endoscopy is a test, where in a tube is inserted through the mouth and stomach, and esophagus can be seen. It is done by a doctor in the hospital.

Yes it may be required. The chokling that you feel is also due to your gastritis. Even i feel it and my doc said it is due to my chronic gastritis

Hello, for about 2 weeks now I have had a problem with my throat and voice. I am a singer and 1/2 of my range is completely gone (upper range), when I try to sing, my throat tightens and no matter how hard I try I cant hit the note (a note which normally is very easy for me). Normally when i cant hit a note my voice just cracks, now it doesnt even do that, it just stops and goes very flat. Sometimes it almost feels as if I am chocking on my throat if i try too hard. Any Ideas for me? Thanks a lot!
