See below.: Why aren't you getting this info from those who are treating you? No one here can know any better than those who know your story, your labs and have actually looked inside. I can only guess that you have erosive esophagitis secondary to reflux or perhaps h. Pylori. But your doctors know. Ask them.

Maybe paraesophageal: This coul be due to a large hiatal hernia known as a paraesophageal hernia. This generally requires surgical repair by a surgeon with extensive experience in laparoscopic hiatal hernia repair.
