Re: horrible pain when eating
hi, i'm sorry i don't have the answer for you but i can completely relate to your problem.
i have exactly same feeling of food sitting in my chest most of the time but i don't have burning, it's rather a feeling of pressure and tightness. it may last for hours or days, when i'm hungry i feel hunger pain in my chest. then when i eat i can feel food sitting there, can even feel it moving. i had all kinds of tests done and all came back normal: endoscopy, barium swallow, manometry, gastric emptying, h-pylori etc. when i had barium swallow i could feel the whole cup of barium they gave me sitting right in my chest. however they showed me images on the screen and there was nothing there - completely empty esophagus! i've tried every medication i could get my hands on yet nothing worked. still seeing doctors and hope they would find something...
have you had any tests done?
