Can A Displaced Rib Cause You Pain When You Swallow Food
What is most likely the cause of constant left side rib pain that worsens when swallowing food or liquids??
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.

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
