Correct: Eating or drinking acid things will make the esophageal irritation worse. It may take time for the meds to work. If you are very pregnant, you probably have reflux and should stay upright as much of the time as you can (even to sleep) and take an antacid whenever you hurt as well as at bedtime or if you wake up in the night.See 1 more doctor answer

I've had 3 episodes in the past 5months where food is getting stuck in my lower esophagus. Takes 20 min of pain, mucous and gurgling before it passes.

If in a rush on the way to work, normally I guzzle coffee and take big bites of food. How much is the food/drinks temperature damaging me, and what will happen to esophagus?

Pharynx: The pharynx, the common space at the back of the mouth and throat where food and breathing take place, has reflexly operated membranes and cartilage which close the larynx (windpipe) when swallowing and prevents the wrong this from getting past. This can be consciously bypassed - but why would you want this?
Esophageal symptoms: Technically, the esophagus is a mediastinal structure that sits forward of the spinal cord and behind the airway. As such, its mid-body and not "in the back." that being said, esophageal pain can radiate to the chest or back, and shares many of the same nerve pathways of pain as does the heart. You're right in that food sticking is typically described as "in the chest.".
