I'm 47, male, and had no previous health problems. About a month ago, I woke up with a sour taste in my mouth that wouldn't go away. Then a week later came terrible heartburn and tingling in my chest. Doctor sent me for stress test--all negative. I decided to go to G.I. doctor who did endoscopy. Results were small hiatal hernia and suspicion for Barrett's. PPIs help symptoms somewhat but give me constipation. I have felt unwell the whole time, can't work, and have withdrawn from family and friends. They don't understand. This all feels so hopeless. I feel like my life has been completely ruined in the space of a month. I see no cure other than a hard surgery. Is there any hope?
