I'm getting worried. My symptoms seem to be geting worse and worse. I saw the doctor last week and they told me to increase the Nexium to twice a day. I'm getting an upper GI with SBFT on Monday. I want to request an endoscopy too. They agree it sounds like GERD. I'm worried it could become Barretts.
I've had constant hearburn for awhile now. The last month or so I've felt a constant lump in my throat. Now my voice is sounding raspy. Is this a symptom of GERD or something worse? I pray it doesn't move to Barretts. I'm getting a little more concerned.
Was diagnosed recently with barrett's but ya just have to keep a watch on it......i get hoarse and raspy, too...........doc says it's all related, plus I had surgery 4 mths ago and still have it............have lots of chest dryness too
