Hi I have had barrets for a long time now I am 30 .but my throat this last week has gone unbelievable sore .struggle to swallow and eat .and when I do eat it just feels like it sits at bottom of osaphagus and doesn't move. Take gaviscon double action doesn't budge at all .bad stomach .ansmd throat so red .I am due a camera in the next week or so .waiting on a phone call

Which I am gutted as I hate having the camera they are awful .but I no I have to have it .I have decided to not drink at all anymore mi did have the odd glass of wine and shandy here and there but not loads .but I am getting worries now that something is hanging around. As always feel unwell and tired .larthagic .so I am pretty much earing fish vegetables potato each night no .any suggestions. And do any of you no if taking omeprazole long term are as bad for you as good been on them bout 6 years or more .
