    Hey Logan,

    I am not a doctor only my opinion, but ive done my own research after fearing the same thing and having paranoia and anxiety. I saw a video from a ucla doctor, and basically he said that even with barrets esophagus, which increase the risk of esophageal cancer 40x the chance of getting it was still really low. Many people here are suffering from similar and worsening conditions such as yourself. Also I saw a video from a Stanford doctor on lpr who pretty much said the same thing. So if you need the peace of mind to reduce the anxiety talk to the gi about getting an upper gi done. It might be worth getting since you are feeling worse. I had one scheduled myself but cancelled it, I have been dealing with my anxiety and it is helping my condition and symptoms. Keeping to a hobby helps me, as well as taking melatonin at night to sleep calmly. Hope you start feeling relief soon.

    Take care,
