I Am Regurgitating My Food
My dysphagia comes and goes. I worry about doing the barium test in a good day. Would it show a result if I don't choke or regurgitate food there?
Depends...: Avoid foods & behavior that delay stomach emptying &/or relax the lower esophageal sphincter--spicy, greasy food, mints, alcohol, tobacco, chocolate, tomato-based products, caffeinated & fizzy drinks, eating before bedtime. Lose weight. Elevate head of bed on blocks. Certainly if no response within 4-5 days (depending on dose & diet/behavioral factors above) best see GI doctor if persistent/worse. ...Read more

There are other causes, as well, Get seen and examined and have any necessary tests done to sort this out. See http://www.uwmedicine.org/health-library/Pages/esophageal-diverticula.aspx ...Read more
