Feels like food is stuck on my chest for a few hours, no problem swallowing liquids. Have the urge to force myself to burp?
Hi: If liquids pass you probably do not have a blockage as they would come back up too. You might have irritated your lower esophagus. Liquid antacids might be the best to try at first and dose four times a day. You might need to treat up to two weeks and Zantac (ranitidine) OTC would be easier. If your symptoms have been there longer then you need to seek further evaluation and treatment and possibly a scope. ...Read more

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
