I sure hope things work out and you get a doc who listens. I can totally relate to docs who do not listen, treat you like you have the IQ of wallpaper paste.
I just wanted to add that my mom, who has barretts, and had all these awful tests done, was told to do yoga, to work on relaxation, see a shrink ,in addition to the medical interventions. She did not consider herself "stressed out", and I never thought of her that way, but it really seems to have helped.
I am in the "waiting period" as well...and am trying to do all the "GERD recommendations" I can-elevated bed, no caffeine
no soda, etc, and am trying to really work on breathing and relaxation, using visualization and imagry to slow my breath down, i have no idea if this will help in the long run but it feels good to be doing SOMETHING and sometimes I do feel better!
and this forum is great!!
I live in a rural area
so it really helps to have contact with other people in the same boat, more or less!!
hope you get some answers!
