I've had 3 endoscopies over the years (such fun they are  :P but quick at least) and the hearburn got a lot worse in peri.
I tried everything and am now on omeprazole 20mg daily which I take in the evening. With meno I got irregular heartbeat from the vagus nerve area and omepraz helps that too. Gastric reflux runs in my family.

Honey is on my banned list from the specialist (dunno why) as is cooked tomato, pulses and beans and anything cabbagey.  It def overlaps with my IBS which is loads better due to the new diet. (having said that, i cheat on the cooked tomato if I've remembered to take my omeprazole  ;D)
I would say have an endoscope done if you can, to rule anything out as long term heartburn is horrible.
