Hi there njam. A few things...don't worry yourself about
cancer or even Barretts. Just dont' let yourself go to that point yet.
I would suggest meeting with a GI doctor, and they may wanna perform some tests on you such as a barium swallow, or endoscopy...after listening to your symptoms, they will decide.
For the record, you can have GERD without heartburn, it is possible.
You need to stop googling, cuz you will drive yourself crazy.
Your first step is to meet with a primary doctor who will probably refer you to a GI. Go from there.
Feel free to stick with us, ask questions, and get the infomation and support you need right now.
Promise me one thing though...YOU WILL STOP GOOGLING! Googling should be considered a disease in itself! LOL.
Really though, get with a doc, see what's going on, and don't worry yourself to death.
Keep us posted!
WISHING YOU THE BEST!
