Question Hi, I was diagnosed with TMS a few years ago for fibromyalgia, bad foot and ankle pain, tendinitis, GERD, etc. and was able to rid myself of most of the symptoms, except for the GERD. A few years back, my first endoscopy showed inflammation in the esophagus and further 24 hr ph test showed acid reflux reaching up to my throat. My most recent endoscopy showed what my doctor believes, based on the pathology results, to be Barrett's esophagus, which terrifies me. I've tried on and off for years to act like this GERD was TMS and ignore my symptoms and continue to eat and drink what I want, but I just continuously will have this raw soreness in my esophagus and throat and burning irritation in my mouth. I do believe my GERD is linked to stress and likely TMS, since when I take Xanax or go on a relaxing vacation the symptoms drastically decrease and sometimes even disappear briefly, but I just can't seem to get rid of them otherwise. Have you successfully treated people who sound just like me with their GERD and related damage? Do you have any advice? Thank you!
