Re: esophagus hurts when i swallow

If the food feels like it's getting stuck and won't go down, it will cause pain, as I found out. I ended up having a test done and found out I have an ulcer in my esophagus. I take Prevacid now and no longer can take ibuprofen. Good luck and hope you get relief soon.

I would like to know which test you had done to find out u had an ulcer in your esophagus?? I have severe pain in the middle chest part on top of my esophagus all the way to my stomach and it makes it so I cant eat because I feel like the food is getting stuck. barrium xray is wednesday, would that show?? I am desperate to find answers.

Only other thing I can think of is in the past Ive had several strep throats and one of them was VERY painful for 2 weeks turning into a cyst in my throat which was cut out by a ENT and the pain literally demolished.

The only test I had that diagnosed my ulcer was an endoscopy....tube with camera down your esophogas. You're sedated, of course and it's no problem.
