I was diagnosed with Barrett's back in 2015 following an endoscopy. I used to get bad indigestion and burning in my chest. I had a two year check in December 17 and was told that the Barrett's was about the same but I also had a hiatus hernia. Biopsies were taken which showed no cancer. I also suffer from IBS.
?In the last four weeks my symptoms have been getting worse and apart from constant indigestion (despite taking Pantoprazole 40mg a day and Gaviscon) I am now getting pains in my stomach and trapped wind which is really painful. I used to have a healthy appetite but this has reduced and I now get pains after meals but only eat small portions as feel full pretty quickly. I do sometimes feel sick but not enough to think I will vomit. I haven't so far lost weight but with my meal reductions this could follow and my bowel movements are not unusual.
?I guess I will go back to my GP who will tell me that as the last endoscopy was clear, it is either my Barrett's playing up or my IBS and send me away. I haven't had pains like this before, obviously my mind thinks of stomach cancer as some of the symptoms match but as I have had an endoscopy would this be picked up with that ?
?I just wondered if anyone had something similar. Thanks.
