You were diagnosed with Barrett's esophagus? That is a chronic inflammatory condition of the lower esophagus. That would cause pain for you if this is the case ....it would need to be monitored periodically by a gastroenterologist... ( that condition may increase risk to develop esophageal cancer...)
You should be on REFLUX PRECAUTIONS ---1) wait 1.5 hour after you eat before you lie down...
2) elevate head of bed on blocks under headside bedposts 4 to 6 inches
3) avoid GI irritants including alcoholic drinks/ coffee/ hit spicy or acidic foods ( tomato products , onions,peppers,citrus fruits) avoid anti-inflammatory drugs such as aspurin,Aleve,Advil (TYLENOL ok )
Strong medicine regimen to reducecstomach acid such as Protonix twice a day ...
Follow up with gastroenterologist....
