Brief Answer:
It does not give any specific symptoms at all.

Detailed Answer:
Hello.

Thank you for the query.

Barrets esophagus is a change in the mucosa structure. It does not give any specific symptoms at all. It can be seen only under a microscope.

As you are very young and your acid reflux does not seem to be well controlled, you may be a good candidate to antireflux surgery called fundoplication. I suggest you to consult gastrologist and discuss it.

Hope this helps.
Regards.
