Is this a more or less severe condition than acid reflux, or the same thing? --KQ

It is not quite the same thing. Reflux is a natural thing that occurs in healthy people to some small degree and often in response to a large meal or other transient causes. Reflux oesophagitis refers to the chronic recurrence of reflux and is a common problem / disease occuring in many adults. There were incorrect references on the main page to Barret's disease being the same thing as Gasto Esophogeal Reflux Disease (GERD) which is incorrect.
