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

Your problem sounds like something I had about ten years ago when all my food felt like it piled up in my esophagus and wouldn't move into my stomach fast enough, especially heavy foods like hamburger or peanut butter. I went to a gastric doctor and he put a scope down into my stomach. He found that the ring that's at the end of the esophagus where it enters the stomach had closed in enough that my food did not enter my stomach very well and backed up in my esophagus. they have a procedure where they cut the ring and widen the opening into the stomach, it's painless and it works instantly. I have not had that problem again. This might be your problem.
