In brief: Esophageal thrush

The primary symptoms of esophageal thrush include chest pain, particularly when swallowing, difficulty swallowing, nausea and/or vomiting, and occasional weight loss.
The best way to diagnose it when suspected is by biopsy or scraping for a sample during endoscopy. If you are concerned that you may have this, see your doctor or a gastroenterologist. Good luck.
