Scratched Esophagus Symptoms
All the swallow problems, finally an edoscopy. Dr says esophagitis seen, corrugated esophagus esophageal mucosa c/w eosinophilic esophagitis.
Allergist/GI: See an allergist or a GI doc who is comfortable managing eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE). Often, patients with this condition are managed by both specialties. EoE is often managed with multiple therapies, including food elimination diets, proton pump inhibitors, and swallowed steroids depending on severity and symptoms. Please see doc as this is a chronic, sometimes severe, condition. ...Read more
Can be ...: If you "feel" that there is something "stuck" there but not really i.e. You are not drooling saliva, then yes, this symptom, called globus sensation, can be an extra-intestinal manifestation of gerd.

Maybe: This is a very common complaint amongst patients with gerd, but is poorly understood. There is definately the sensation something is stuck there, but typically nothing really is. It probably has to do with abnormal sensory input form the pharynx and upper esophageal sphincter. In any case, its certainly not dangerous. If you want to check out your gerd, see your doctor. ...Read more

Can not chewing well & swallowing food tear esophagus? Chest hurt when swallowing cookie. Afterwards no symptoms, but can it be torn asymptomatically?
Unlikely: A complete tear of the esophagus from normal food would be very unlikely, and you'd know it if it happened (think lots of blood and pain). Esophageal stasis is a condition where normal motility in the esophagus is decreased, leading to pain and difficulty swallowing. The swallowing of hard crunchy foods can cause superficial but painful scratches to the lining of the esophagus. ...Read more

Can upper endoscopy aggravate heartburn? Got scoped 5 days ago (no sedation, mild gastritis and esophagitis, one biopsy).Having severe heartburn now.
Possible but unusual: Most likely lower esophageal adenocarcinoma is caused by gerd, which changes the lining of the lower esophagus into that of the stomach (barrett's) which is a precursor for adenocarcinoma. However, one could have squamous cell type without gerd. Best to review with your gastroenterologist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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?
You would know it's stuck in your throat: If it was stuck in your throat, you would have pain in your throat, and it would feel like something's not going down completely. So that's good. The gastritis may or may not be related to that. Chances are higher if the bone was small enough, and it's in your food, and passes out of your body as stool, you should have no problem. If the gastritis continues however, you need to contact your pcp, and have this examined further. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
