    This is not an answer but I have what is supposedly a "substantial" hiatus hernia. Everything I read tells me bananas should help.  I am the same way, bananas are one of the worst triggers, next to bread products, raw carrots, and dried apricots. I hope that you have been tested by now, the barium x-ray isn't too bad and at least you will know what the actual problem is.  It isn't fun, is all I know.  I find that I choke a lot on almost nothing (like water).  Wishing you all the best and most of all - relief.  I am supposed to take Pantaloc every day.  I am 50 years old, female.
