Question Bread and chest pain

My fiance has developed over the last month or so, severe pain in his chest when eating bread. It comes on almost immediately and it brings tears to his eyes. He describes it as though the bread gets caught in the chest, adding pressure, and making it very hard to swallow. It only happens with bread--both white and wheat. He's okay with other grain/flour items such as tortilla chips, soft shell tacos, rice, etc. Anyone ever heard of such a specific reaction?

Re: Bread and chest pain

Has your fiance had a fundoplication? My son has had two and bread was always the LAST food item he was able to eat without pain. He is much younger than your fiance and so he couldn't accurately describe the pain from eating the bread but it was major, we could tell.

If he has not had a fundoplication, then I don't have any ideas, sorry!
