Just got my results back and still need to talk to my Gastro on next steps. On the endoscope 8 months ago he never said i had the hernia or Schatzki only that i had Esonophilic Esophagitis . I was having some swallowing issues with food getting stuck 

I read that with this i cannot get my Esophagus dilated because its dangerous with having EE so now what. I read people coming off PPI and supplementing the Betaine but I am having a tough time understanding how that gets rid of a hernia that is protruding into your esophagus ??
