Barretts Esophagus,GERDS and IBS

For the last year or so I have had these little pinpoint like pimples in my mouth and throat. I went to my PCP and he checked them out and had no idea what they were or what was causing them. He took a swab, but it came back normal. So he sent me to a ENT and that Doc at first thought it was my tonsils, but at my second visit he said, he didn't know what it was or what was causing them. So I was sent to see another ENT who checked me out and said, he had no idea what these little pimplelike things were or what was causing them. He just wanted me to take a heavy dose of steroids and see what happened. He told me I would probably gain alot of weight, but thats about all he could recommend. I went to see my Gastroenterolists and he just checked out my mouth and felt my stomach, but never answered my questions. I do have Barretts Esophagus, GERDS, and IBS. I take Nexium 40mg. twice a day and had a endoscopy three years ago and he said the Barretts Esophagus was the same( NOT TO BAD) . These things are driving me nuts. I can't seem to find out from anyone what these things are or what is causing them. Does anyone have any ideas ? It seems like they just popped up over night and never went away.

Hi
Thanks for writing to the forum!
This could be due to GERD or acid reflux to your throat and mouth. Avoid heavy meals. Avoid too much of caffeine, tea, fried food and drinks both alcoholic and non alcoholic fuzzy ones. Avoid heavy exercises within 4 hours of a heavy meal. Raise the head end of the bed by pillows to 30 degrees. Go to bed at least 2 hours after food.Try OTC antacid gels. They may help.
These could also be canker sores. Iron deficiency anemia, or vitamin B deficiencies too can cause similar lesions. Take some multivitamin tablet.
Smokers should be careful about such lesions as they can be precursors of oral cancer.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
