    Just so you relax, just about every human life has reflux at some level. Your first step is to start eating healthy foods. I can't tell you what to eat or what not to eat because we are all different. But just look for foods that are not acidic. 

    As for Barrets, only 1 in 200 with Barrets gets cancer so your best option is to relax and eat better because if stress takes over, it doesn't matter what you eat, what medication you take, things are not going to get better.

    God Bless!

      He is right! Eat better, and get rid of stress. I had terrible LPR reflux, and there was not a single "quick fix". Eating better, and removing stress, and prayer are all the things that helped me.

      So many people want their "old life" back, but it's their old habits that led them to reflux. Make a permanent lifestyle change, and don't stress over getting your old like back, instead embrace your new healthy lifestyle.

      Thank you for replying Jose

      My anxiety level is up the roof and im stressing so much about it and that's not helping at all

      I feel like im always at the doctors because of how much i freak out

      I also have severe constipation

      So the stuff that i can have to ease my constipation makes my acid reflux worse and vise versa

      I have been trying to change my diet and eating habits i dont feel like im getting better

      Im just hoping i get better soon
