I am so glad that I "googled" the word manomatry and joined this forum!
I am 32 years old, female and have been diagnosed with Barret's during a Gastroscopy in Nov 2009. LES dysfunction - no hiatus hernia. I had the manomatry done (the most awful experience EVER and will NEVER let them do that to me again) and it was normal.
I suffer from hoarseness and burning chest and throat all the time. I am not over weight, my bed is elevated, I don't eat big meals, I don't eat spicy food and I don't burp (really not lady like) but still I struggle.
I am very new to this GERD and Barret's thing and a little bit anxious. Will have my next Gastroscopy done 19 Feb and don't know what to expect. There is cancer in my family (all over) and I am really scared of the cancer-threat.
Any advice and help will be appreciated.
