    I am not a doctor but have barretts. What strikes me is that you took meds on and off. I take one pill daily and this is what I believe makes them effective. What does the doc say? Do you take the meds daily? Have you had an endoscopy?

    I've had heartburn before that lasted for weeks and it was truly agonizing. I can't imagine what 8 months of constant heartburn feels like though...

    I haven't had heartburn in a while now because i got rid of it with sodium bicarbonate and i kept eating relatively clean after that and it has worked tremendously. The only time i experienced heartburn again was when i drank a really hot cup of tea in the evening.

    I know you said eating clean hasn't helped you, but you should definitely continue with the diet. Just avoid anything that triggers your symptoms and avoid eating late at night. Try not to eat anything after 7 pm, that's what i usually do.

    If none of this helps, i hope endoscopy helps you figure the issue out c:
