In brief: Esophageal tear

An esophageal tear could have a wide range of symptoms, depending on its severity.
If it is mild it would not even be noticed at all symptomatically. If it is severe and results in a perforation of the esophagus, it would cause severe chest and abdominal pain, high fevers, and be a medical emergency. Anything in between could be possible depending upon severity. Hope that helps.
