What are symptoms of bad reflux attack?

Hello, I was taken to emerg on Sunday night overnight and let go MOnday. Rturned to emerg Monday night into Tuesday with severe abdo pain, thinking it was a really bad reflux attack. The hospital did several xrays, ultrasounds, ecg and blood work. Everything was normal. They treatment me with fluids, and dilaudid for pain. I just returned from a GI scope where the results were all normal. I ve had these progressively worsening attacks for years. Could it be something other than reflux? What should I do next?

Hi,

Acute abdominal pain with reflux may be due to gastrtis or irritable bowel syndrome or food intolerance, etc. Until examination is done it is difficult to say what it is. Avoid spicy food and caffeinated drinks. Avoid alcohol and smoking. Please consult your doctor he will examine and treat you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
