See a doctor: More dtailed hisrory and examination is needed . I recommend that you see a GI specialist for an esophagoscopy , if no explanation he/she may direct you to a neurologist.

Esophogus?: Your description that it hurts when you swallow is concerning for something that is near your esophogus (swallowing tube) or something that involves your esophogus. I would recommend you see your doctor for an evaluation.
