Re: Feels like the food is stuck in the middle of my chest..

sounds like there might be possiblity of a hiatal hernia--a small portion of your stomach pushes up past your diaphragm and food can get stuck there for a little while before it works its way down. did you have an egd as part of your workup? as with most uncomfortable sensations, anxiety can def. make it worse. prilosec is one of the meds frequently used to treat the symptoms; it often helps stomach pain--i've not heard of it CAUSING stomach pain.
