I understand your concerns. The symptoms you described are likely from GERD. Barrett's esophagus sometimes requires cryotherapy. The sphincter can be affected and cause worsening on symptoms like in your case. Besides maximizing your anti-acid medication, you should avoid caffeine, smoking and large meals 2 hours before going to be. Try to keep hydrated and always take your medication. If the symptoms persist you should talk to your GI doctor to look for more definitive treatments like fundoplication. Let me know if you have any other questions.
