I was diagnosed with barretts Oesophagus about a year and a half ago following an endoscopy. Immediately after my endoscopy I got severe heartburn. i had never had a day of it prior to the endoscopy. Since then i have taken 40 mgs of Esomeprazole a day and I am not having any heartburn or any other symptoms. But for the last six months I have been bringing up blood in my saliva. Usually worse in the morning but can continue all day. I have seen my GP who sent me to an ENT doctor who put a camera down my throat (through my nose) he said it was sore and a bit "refluxy" - his word - but other than that my throat was ok. I have also done a swallow test and was told all was ok. So then why am I bringing up this blood? Has anyone with barretts had a similar problem? Is it part of the reflux problem or is it something differnt? I am very worried mainly because I cant seem to get any answer to my problem.
