Wow, I am so glad I found this site.
I also have Barret's Esophagus, GERD and have a small hernia. I have seen so many good posts here. I just don't know if I should go to a Nutritional Therapist or what. I took Protonix for three years and then all of a sudden, it didn't work. Next, I tried Zantac, Prevacid, Nexium, Aciphex, Protonix. None of them seem to work. I am ready to give up on all of these pills!!!
My Gastro Dr. says if the pills don't work, I could have surgery. I am thinking of it, but I would love to be able to stop this throat burning without that.
I am worried so much about having Barret's Esophagus. Since my throat is burning so much, I keep thinking the acid is just ruining my esophagus more and more and that I will end up with cancer. I need help!!
I have raised my bed with bricks, but a lot of nights I sleep upright for a few hours before I finally go to bed.
