I was diagnosed with Barretts over a year ago and was told I needed surgery But found out 6 months ago My 27 year old daughter had cancer so I had to put off doing anything I am currently having severe pain and shaking but no burning I read on several websites sometimes that can happen Usually it eventually stops But iv'e been like this for 3 days and I hate the ER They just give you pain meds and by the time you are home it has worn off I have taken my heart med thinking It might be my heart but it did not help Valium Xanax Nothing I am worried I don't have a clue what is going on Christmas is the wrong time for this to happen Has anyone else ever had actual pain and feeling nervous with no burning  I read alot of posts My heart goes out to everyone

    I can understand your wanting to be there for your daughter but even though the holidays are coming up, it sounds like it's time to take care of yourself.  Have you called your doctor to setup an appointment? And a trip to the ER isn't the worse thing.  I'm not a doctor and don't know what is happening to you but please get medical attention as soon as possible.   I was diagnosed with Barrett's with high grade dysplasia, and can tell you tell you that treating it is no picnic.  Endoscopies, biopsies, ablations, and surgery and then lots of followup.
