Re: Doctor told me "food sticking in chest" is my IBS???
I have the same problem with swallowing. I eat, and halfway down it just sites there. My doc gave me prilosec, and I have been taking it since May, and it helps immensely. Now, the bloating has slowed, and the bowel movements are more normal. I don't belch as often, but the gas is still an issue. The food goes down now, and I can feel it get "to the bottom". My stomach empties out quite swiftly, but if I eat the right things, I do not get hungry. I take a calcium supplement and a vitamin daily with the prilosec, and it has helped me to fight the IBS with no other meds. I hope this helps.
