Re: Big Burp Stuck DURING Eating
That does sound painful, could be your esophogaus have you tried anything like zantac or prilosec two a day? prilosec is the same as nexium if you take it 2 a day its basically the same thing. Also you cant just take it when you feel the burp happening you have to do this every day two a day for it to work. But it will only work if you think its an acid issue if not it may have no effect. I do suggest though going in for an endoscopy. Try to limit the hard to digest foods like meats, watch your diet, and eat slowly. Sounds like some sort of Dysphagia though of some sorts or Odynophagia or possible GERD. There are many reasons to have dysphragia though so an endoscopy would be in order.
Diverticuli of the pharynx and esophagus
Itll depend on the cause to give a treatment..or good drug option so couldnt say! But I hear You may learn to position your head in ways that help you swallow and certain exercises for it and DGL chewable form helps the acid and coats the pharnyx 1 hr before meals and Slippery Elm in powder in water drink it coats the esophagas 3 times a day (herbs) can help, but if it is Gerd then you can do the prilosec two a day, test things out see what works but def go for the endoscopy!
