Nondiagnostic: Although nondiagnostic these symptoms may be due to esophagitis or esophageal motility disorder. Try following a bland,low fat diet,avoid alcohol,caffeine,nicotine, aspirin,nsaids(ibuprofen,naproxen), take a medication like nexium or zantac. If symptoms persist,I recommend consulting a gastroenterologist for diagnosis and treatment.
