    This was something common a few years ago that happened to my husband.  He finally got an endoscope done where they sedate you, put a scope with a camera down your throat, and view the esophageal lining and stomach area.  His was clogged up with scar tissue from recurring stomach acid.  Over the years, the acid produced inflammation and the esophagus had repaired itself.  The doctor had to clean out that scar tissue.  He said that some people have to have it done every year and some people every few years, and he may never have to have it redone.  The key is to watch the spices that you eat, if it is really bad maybe take a proton pump inhibitor like Nexium, Prevacid, Prilosec, to keep acid decreased, don't eat right before going to bed say 2 to 3 hrs before, and keep your head elevated at least six inches when sleeping, also decrease soda pop.
