Here is the link to parakeratosis.
It is a condition in which there is an increased cell division of the esophageal cells and is usually considered to be a benign condition.

What explains esophageal pain + burn everytime right after taking oral ferrous gluconate with GERD, atrophic gastritis & neuroendocrine hyperplasia?
It's a huge pill: Having an already irritated esophagus, likely with abnormal motility and then taking a huge pill will likely result in further irritation. Iron doesn't dissolve well. Furthermore, the entire point of iron in the body is to be able to easily add and subtract electrons. This also makes it inherently irritating as a chemical. ...Read more

Anti reflux Rx: Be is a complication of chronic reflux; may be painless. Cells in lower esophagus look like intestinal cells, would be ok if they weren't esoph. Cells; less resistant to chemical onslaught. Pre-cancerous. 1% of barrett's pts. May develop adeno (gland) ca of esoph. Rx with aggressive med rx, ppi twice a day, and follow up endoscopy to check for "dysplasia"-more cancer-like; can remove by scope. ...Read more
Change in lining: Barrett's esophagus is when there is irritation to the area between the esophagus and stomach, causing the cells there to change from one form to another. The reason this is important is because the changed cells have a relatively high (compared to normal people) chance to progress to cancer. You would need endoscopy to find and treat this condition. ...Read more
Do U have Achalasia: Achalasia is defined by absent peristalsis in the esophagus & incomplete relaxation of the lower esophageal sphincter (les). It may be a "primary" esophageal motility disorder, or "secondary" to cancers invading the les (pseudoachalasia), chagas disease from reduviid bug bites, amyloidosis, sarcoidosis, eosinophilic infiltration. Similar motor abnormalities can be seen with diabetes & ciip. ...Read more
Spasm: The esophagus is very muscular to move food from your mouth o your stomach. Sometimes these muscles cramp up into a spasm, which causes a severe pain. Please contact your primary provider to evaluate this further if it dosen't resolve soon ...Read more
Probably: Barrett's is caused by the bathing of the bottom of the esophogus with irritating substances. Barrett's is considered to be a pre-cancerous condition, so you want to avoid getting it. It can occur even if you take antiacids or drugs like nexium, (esomeprazole) prevacid, Prilosec or tagamet because bile reflux which isn't painful can also cause it. You need to see a GI for endoscopy and follow up. ...Read more
No: The vast majority are benign. It's good to check occasionally for little cancers that can develop. ...Read more
Possible: If you are asking if a person can get an infection in the esophagus, the answer is yes. Infection can occur in any part of the body. If you are asking about esophagitis, it does not have to be an actual infection caused by a bacteria, virus, fungus, or parasite. It can mean irritation of the esophageal mucosa from recurrent exposure to refluxed stomach acid, mostly affecting the lower esophagus. ...Read more
