      I am assuming you saw the dr. regarding the diagnosis....Pls discuss this w/the dr.  get a secomd opinion because you are quite young to feel so badly. I have friends in their 70's that have Barretts and aren't feeling quite like you are.  They do take medication for the Barretts...Get a second opinion and tell them everything you feel and get well......liz

    Hey Dean,

    I have the same thing, silent reflux, and I can honestly tell you that I can't remember a time

    when I used to feel well .

    I imagine it wasn't all that long ago in reality , but it certainly seems like years and years ago. I have had every symptom there is in relation to this crappy ailment. I'll bet that all or a good deal of your symptoms are because of this. There are just so many varying symptoms that go along with reflux. Of course it could be something else , you can't rule out that possibility , but personally I chalk it all up to reflux. I've put up with all this for so long that it's just another day no questions asked.

      Im much older than you though so that can make a difference. keep after your doctor. Theres no reason for you to feel so bad at your age from reflux.

    Oh yes, I get asked all the time what's the matter with me.  Last night at a works bbq, I am coughing, choking whilst eating, not a pretty sight, and believe me not good for me.  Totally understand how you feel.  Want to try going to the cinema with acid reflus......tring to keep a cough at bay for 2 hours was physically impossible....

    Hi dean

    Sorry you are suffering so much at such a young age.

    When my reflux is bad i do get all those symptoms.

    Do you have food allergies or intolerances?

    I know my LES spincter muscle doesnt work properly so for the last 2 1/2 yrs i have been trying to figure out why. I know from my second endoscope i have a very small hiatus hernia but i havent been convinced its the sole cause of reflux.

    Im now suspecting after much research I have SIBO. I plan to test for this soon.

    My last resort will be linx procedure.

    Its important to raise your bed at least 8 inches. I have 2 bricks under mine. Gravity helps keep acid out of oesphagus.

    A low fat diet helps and avoiding all the normal trigger foods. I assume you are aware of all of these? Choc, caffeine and alcohol are my top trigger foods.

    Always here to help Dean.

    All the best
