Bleeding Esophagus?

I have had an issue of blood for many years. It is especially bad for my heart.

I have Barretts Esophagus and a lot pain in that area. I think its bleeding.

Sept 2010 to March 1 2011
Iron went from 65 to 24
hgb went from 12.5 to 10.5
hct went from 39.8 to 31
Ferritin went from 30.30 to 5.5

Iron infusion scheduled next week. Hemotolosst wanted me to go in hosp today for 2 unit blood transfusion (heart goes nuts when blood goes down) but I opted for iron infusion.

Feel like I'm swimming in mud, too tired to watch tv or even read. Get winded walking to bathroom.

Angina is scary.

Thanks for listening,
Robin

Hi, do you know for sure you are bleeding the esophagus? I have not been diagnose with cancer have you???? I have GERD so bad right now it actually irritating my esophagus making it hard to swallow and it feels like sores in there. I had a CT last year and nothing showed up and a Ultrasound of my gallbladder that said slugde. However, the gallbladder has either quit functioning or is low function. When I take prilosec I get bad attacks of my GB. My heart rate elevates during these time in to the 100's no shortness of breath. Well anyway I have been having blood in my mouth every morning during waking up. I think it is coming from teeth and back of throat. I have nose bleeds but they come out the nose this is like in back of throat. I do not know if it is coming from esophagus or what.
