Thanks for sharing your story. I too was diagnosed with Barrett's but my most recent gastronologist says according to my upper GI, I no longer have it. I asked him if it can go away on its own and he replied no, that the previous gastronologists I had probably put the scope a bit too far past the esophagus into the stomach and it showed some red.
I'm thinking there's a chance that what I was doing helped me get rid of the barretts. I did have at least 3 upper GI's before I was told I didn't have barretts. I'm not saying you might not have it, what I'm trying to say is we really have to do all that we can to help ourselves along with working with our doctors though not always following their every piece of advice.
Do you ever watch Dr. Oz? I've been trying something new for my gerd that was recommended on his show: DGL licorice. I would recommend that you google this. These tablets seem to help my stomach along with the acid and give me some relief for my difficulty breathing.
Also I would recommend that you look at Drugs.com and look into the side effects of some of these meds you're on just so you can stay on top of things.
Fibromyalgia, CFS, MCS, scoleosis, herniated disks, spinal stenosis, osteoarthritis, sjorgens, sleep apnea, asthma, allergies, headaches. On a regiment of different supplements including sleep supplements. I eat nutritiously and do not eat foods I'm sensitive to and ever since a back injury triggered my fibromyalgia, I have been doing prescribed stretches twice daily.
