when i swallow it feels like something is stuck in my throat and then it feels like the heartburn comes along but its mainly in my chest then throat that it feels like something is stuck
I can only give you my experience and what I've learned from reading articles. For years I had trouble swallowing. Friends said that maybe I eat too much or too fast, but I knew there had to be another explanation. Finally my doctor sent me to a Gastroenterologist who gave me an endoscopic exam. This is a procedure in which a camera is introducted down the esophagus (you won't remember this) and the stomach was checked out.
They discovered that I had too much acid in the stomach which created gastritis and the acid went into the esophagus as well, injuring the surface. Over a long period of time, this harmed the surface of the esophagus and created scar tissue which narrowed the organ. Of course, this hindred my swallowing. The doctor prescribed Nexium to control the acid, plus he stretched the esophagus. I haven't had trouble swallowing since.
Unfortunately, I also was found to have eosinophilic esophagitis, caused by airborne and food allergies, and this also injured the esophagus. I am taking allergy shots now, plus am restricted on what foods I eat. Hopefully this will solve the problem.
Casie, I recommend that you study all you can and also visit a gastroenterologist. If you can, have an endoscopy test that will determine just what the problem is.
Can you please share with us what foods you are eating?Thank you.
