chest pressure and feels like food stuck in throat.
I'm new to the boards, and this is my first post. Here goes......the dr. says I have acid reflux, so he had me take pepcid. I've been taking it 3 times a day for 6 months and it isn't helping. He put a scope down my throat and said my esophagus was narrow at the top and bottom, so he stretched it during a procedure. It doesn't feel better at all. It seems like it's worse! He had me try protonics before pepcid, but it caused my heart to flutter and skip beats at night. Talk about anxiety! It just doesn't matter what I eat..i feel the chest pressure, burping, gas, like something is stuck. Has anyone had any of these symptoms and if so, what are you doing about it. I'm 60 years old, and this has been going on for a long time. I appreciate any feed back.
