chest pressure & pain

i've got a constant pressure in my chest which goes away sometimes but is here about 90% of the time. gets stronger after eating, it feels like food is sitting in there. if i'm hungry the hunger pain is in my chest as well. had a barium swallow test done today, all came back normal, barium passed to stomach easily and nothing was stuck in esophagus. everything was in the right place. however during and after the test i was feeling as if the barium was stuck in my chest.
antacids doesn't work, domperidone doesn't work and no other medication i've tried helps... i don't have heartburn.
can anyone relate to this? any ideas what this could be?

Re: chest pressure & pain

I have gastritis and I also feel pain and pressure in my chest. Does it hurt when you press in high up between your rib cage? Mine does that. That is my worst complaint.
