If you have required esophageal dilatation in the past, it is possible that you may have a partial narrowing of your esophagus or even esophageal ulcer which could cause burning. I would recommend that you use antacids such as Mylanta or Tums in the meantime, but I would make an urgent appointment to see your gastroenterologist. Good luck.
