Hi everyone. I'm a 35yr old female from Aus. I have been having heartburn mainly a burning in my throat for a month or so. Probably 4 times a week approx. I went to my Dr and he gave me Pantoprozole 40mg twice daily for a few weeks then reduce to lesser dose blah blah blah. I am still having that burning most days and my anxiety that i have something worse (barrets) is worrying me. I even went to the ER and they said that i most likely have oesophagitis and reflux. The GI doc that was on duty said no to a scope for now. I actually had a scope back in 2009 due to bleeding when vomiting. That came back as a Mallory Weiss tear. Back then I never had any issues with reflux/heartburn. Could this possibly be anything too serious or am I being overly anxious. I hate the whole "watch and wait" scenario. Im sorry for the long post, just really concerned.
