Hi, Im 32 male overweight and have had reflux symptoms for years.
I have been on a few different PPI's over the years and I have been on Nexium 40mg for a few years now.
I had a scope done in 2012 at age 27 which revealed I had "probable reflux oesophagitis".
I didn't really pay too much attention to it and continued to eat what i wanted, consume a ridiculous amount of caffienated diet soft drink daily and smoke.
I have quit both drinking the soft drink and smoking within the past 12 months, the soft drink being the most recent.
Being a worrier, I am worried that I may have more damage done or even Barretts. I still do get symptoms (drinking too much water will trigger it) which I tend to inflect on myself on a daily basis.
Should I be worried or should I just continue on my path and to loose weight?
