My chest feels like my food is stuck and i keep burping and spitting up flem what could be my problem?

Dysphagia?

Chest
Narrowing of the esophagus due to inflammation, scarring or tumor can cause food to get stuck. Not rare with chronic reflux/heartburn symptoms-typically solids. Tight lower esoph sphincter can cause also. Abnormalities in muscles/nerves/coordination of swallow cause problems with solids and liquids. See a GI doc. tests include xray swallow, endoscopy, muscle test (manometry). Rx: help or cure

why do i spit up my food when i burp?

Regurgitation

Esophageal
when you burp, you are relaxing the lower esophageal sphincter (muscle at the bottom of the esophagus that keeps food and gas in the stomach for digestion). When this muscle opens to allow gas out, some food particles are also making their way across the sphincter and regurgitating up the esophagus. Antireflux medications can help but so can careful diet (no overeating, avoid sodas, late meals,etc

It sounds like you may be get dealing with severe allergy symptoms. This is potentially life-threatening if untreated, and you need to see someone ASAP to get this thing turned around, if that's what it is. If you have to go to an emergency room, do so. But if you have a doctor please call him or her right away.

Swallowing air

You are probably swallowing air with your food, we all do to some extent. Try eating small meals more frequently.

Pain in left side of chest and back and under left side ribs frequent burping difficulty swallowing feels like food has hard time going down in chest?

See a doc

Prilosec
This might be related to GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease) and could be helped with an acid blocker such as omeprazole. You could try that for a couple of days. If it persists, though, probably best to see your physician.

She 27 married,spits alot n she is not pregnant,complain of irritation if food is not pepperish,suspecting it culd be worm In her chest.plz cause?

Strange

Would suggest seeing a doctor, although these symptoms are unusual. May be some defect in saliva production, acid reflux, sinusitis, or dental disease. The feeling of something in chest suggests that this may be acid reflux, but as an example a disease like sarcoidosis can do this. She should see a doctor soon.

Is spitting up blood a sign of food poisoning for infants?

Concern

Bottle_feeding
Spitting up blood is NOT normal. Your child should be seen IMMEDIATELY by your Pediatrician or a hospital ER to determine cause and provide Rx. Please go now. I cannot emphasize this enough, please go now.
