My husband was having chest pain (sternum) and we thought it was his heart. After many heart tests, we found out it wasn't his heart but his esophagus. He has been diagnosed with Barretts. My husband has been on Nexium at first and developed a sore throat in a few days and now on AcipHex - both giving him sore throats. Anyone have this problem - what can he take w/o having a sore throat? Or will this go away? He's only been recently diagnosed with Barretts.
