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

You may have a condition which is becoming much more widespread... EE or
Eosino Esophagitis. This condition causes the stuck in the throat symptoms and can
lead to sharp pains in the chest. Eosinophils are a white blood cell functioning
part of your immune system and they are sent to the esophagus to protect against an allergic reaction. To determine the cause of the symptoms you would likely get scoped and a small biopsy taken to determine the level of eosinophils in the tissue. They will also look for telltale rings in the esophagus which are caused by the condition. EE is mostly caused by food allergies but also by airborne allergies. Hope you don't have it.
