In brief: Stricture

You have an injury or a scar called an esophageal stricture.
Please go see your doctor about this. It should never be ignored.

inflammation **much** more likely than stricture... but agree, a visit to your PCP is in order. you'll likely start on a PPI, if the symptoms do not improve, will plan for imaging tests or an endoscopy. meanwhile, stay away from alcohol, caffeine and spicy/acidic foods.
