You have my sympathy, not that it's going to help you, your entering a very confusing topic with many diferent opinions, not only from the people suffering from it but also from the doctor's dealing with it, I have seen many doctor's and listend to much contradiction between them, as I see it we're in the hand's of the god's on this one, what might work on one person will do nothing on another, nothing makes a lot of sence with it, I like you have been on the normal pill's dished out by the doctor's and hospital, nothing has made any change to the pain, my latest bi opsie results surgest some reduction but then he said in the same breath he cant rule out Barret's, for me it dosen't matter what I eat, I have tried bland food and spring water and still the same pain, the only thing that help's is a mild curry ! as for stress, yes it can be a factor, you could go on antidepressant's but it's getting off them after ? sorry I can't give you any concreat advice but your in a grey area here, I have a friend that has been suffering this for 7 year's he's even had surgery and but still the same, my advice for what it's worth is read as much as you can about it and try what work's for some people, mabe it will work for you ? I wish you good luck, remember your not alone here ! best regard's Bedwedge.
