Felt like food and liquid were getting stuck in the middle of my ribs. Had endoscopy found gastritis. Now I have been noticing my swallowing is becoming more difficult, specifically saliva. Can gastritis cause this? Taking prilosec 20 for 4 weeks now

Gastritis: In my experience this is more of a symptom of an esophageal motility disorder rather than gastritis. In some cases of gastritis, prilosec has to be taken twice a day to be effective. You could try that, but if symptoms persist ask your gastroenterologist about the possibility of esophageal motility disorder in your case. ...Read more

I have sever cramping like pain in my chest with every bite of food I swallow. My chest continues to stay soar for a while after. What causes this?

Esophageal stricture: This sounds like food is catching in your esophagus. This can be caused by a variety of problems such as reflux esophagitis with stricture, damaged innervation of the esophagus, or other causes of a stricture. A video-esophagogram performed by a radiologist can clear this up. This might need to be followed by endoscopic evaluation of the esophagus. See your primary doctor. ...Read more

When I swallow food/drink, I feel pain in my esophagus close to where my rib cage separate. Like the food is trying to go down through a tiny hole.

Maybe that's problem: "transfer dysphagia" is a problem moving the food bolus from your mouth to the top of the esophagus; "transit dysphagia" is a problem transiting the food down the esophagus. Motility studies (modified barium swallow with speech therapist; esophageal manometry) ; GI imaging (endoscopic or radiographic) may identify problem. Sometimes, just esophageal spasms can make swallowing feel difficult. ...Read more
