Yesterday i swallowed chicken with little bone. Now i couldn't feel any symptom such as pain. Is there any specific symptom could i feel if got stucked in esophagus. I havea gastritis. Differnt sympto?

Possibly: Antacids may reduce the amount of acid in the stomach. One of the disorders of swallowing includes reflux esophagitis (heartburn). Therefore, if you take antacids, you may reduce these symptoms. If you have difficulty swallowing, though, several other causes may be identified with correct evaluation by a gastroenterologist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
