food stuck in esophagus
About 5 times the last year, maybe less, ive swallowed something only to have it get 'stuck' down my esophagus. after a few minutes, it makes its way to my stomach. all of the time, i get the sensation that i need to burp but when i try to, the food is there. so i swallow, then the additional air tries to make me burp again. endless cycle. sometimes i just force my self to expel the food out my mouth. the first time this happened for me was approx 7-10 years ago. sparatically since then.
Im sure many on this board have had this condition. Im nervous that its serious and am affraid to goto a specialist.
Can someone offer some direction?
