Barrett’s Esophagus | Symptoms


What are the symptoms of Barrett’s esophagus and when should I see my doctor?

You should ask your doctor about Barrett's esophagus if you have heartburn 3 or more times each week, or if you have had heartburn for many years. You should also see your doctor if you have trouble swallowing, pain when you swallow, unexpected weight loss, blood in your vomit or bowel movements, or bowel movements that look like black tar.
