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 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....

PS --- Gallstones may cause abdominal pain too... Right side and may radiate to back... Typical may follow meal especially if fat content ..pain may usually be severe for 30 minutes to 4 hours then ease ...

Treatment to remove gallbladder by surgery is usual course of treatment for that problem..

I hope that this is helpful for you

Best regards!
