What does upper abdomen ultrasound detect in gerd?

What does upper abdomen ultrasound detect in gerd? Doctor adviced me for it when I refused to go for Endoscopy. I had already got one endoscopy done 3 years back but it came out normal(which I don't understand how). But now what upper abdomen ultrasound can detect in this condition?

What are your symptoms?

Harleen Kaur
I 've lots of symptoms, throat irritation, heaviness in chest after lying down, excess salvation, sour taste in mouth, sometimes even wake up due to feeling of something pushing up my throat.

I have all those symptoms and after a test they did on my esophagus… it showed my esophagus wasn't contracting so I couldn't swallow the food correctly. I go for my second endoscopy to get my throat stretched… hopefully it work…. The throat spasms are ridiculous along with the feeling of something being stuck in my throat. I was told to chew my food all the way down or I could choose a Peg- food bag. but I'm not going to give up on being healed without the food bag.

Harleen Kaur
Even heaviness in breathing sometimes and was having dizziness Sometimes which later realized could be due to gerd.

Dipam Dey
Dizziness mayb due to imbalance of vitamins or mineral.

What about you?i fl all these foods cause these problems. Earlier we used to take all natural foods from home..now days have changed

Ultrasound will not detect gerd. But it can check liver, gallbladder, kidneys.

Harleen Kaur
So does it have any concern with gerd or lpr?

Just out of curiosity, why did you refuse endoscopy? After 3 years, things could change. I had two done and the 2nd one changed from the first one.

My results all were normal for 5-6 years, doctors thought I lied, I thought I would die. Never ever heard anything about reflux, or silent reflux (which you also may have).

Harleen Kaur
Did u have any difference in treatment before and after endoscopy ? I mean I know it's reflux and if the stomach splinter is weak I will still have same medication that I'll need without endoscopy

Tünde Vágvölgyi
Not particularly. But they took me serious, and at last I knew what the problem was and I could search help in other ways. Now I still suffer, sometimes better, sometimes worse, but I know what to avoid, how to sleep, and I have myself scoped in every 2-3 years to see everything is alright.

Harleen Kaur
I refused endoscopy as I had reflux even at that time but endoscopy was normal and I feel no change in treatment will be with or without endoscopy as I know I have reflux.

Aliza Kessler
Well I had an endoscopy a few years ago and it wasn't bad but the one I had in December showed I had some food in my stomach even though I didn't eat anything the night before. The doctor sent me for a gastric emptying stomach study which showed I have gastroparesis. I was told that is probably what's causing my reflux.

Monica Zavala
I understand because I refused too! Either way they will still say ppi so not feeling like I need to subject myself to that again. I have CFS and very weak so I just don’t want to do that.
