    I have had this feeling for the past 6 years. I feel like my life has become so horrible with this. Last year I had a barium swallow and dr. Said everything looked fine. I had an upper endoscopy in 2008 everything was fine. But her lately I have been feeling worse with this. I just feel like I have something stuck really bad in throat. Food hurts when it goes down. Sometimes I feel like my food wants to come back up because it’s just sitting in my esophagus. Mid chest hurts so so bad. When I burp it hurts as well. I just want to feel good. Does anyone feel this out there. Please share with me. I need to know I. Ok.

      Ana, I was reading about a case where a woman was suffering from similar symptoms. She was burping a lot, food wouldn’t go down or if it did she would feel really full after a bite a two and the food would come back up. Her dr said nothing was wrong, everything looked fine, they even told her she was imagining it and might have an eating disorder. Finally she was sent to an ear nose and throat specialist and what was happening was that the muscles in her esophagus weren’t pushing the food into her stomach so it was backing up in her actual esophagus causing the feeling of fullness and the food to come back out. Food wasn’t reaching her stomach and just filling her esophags instead. See if you can get into see a specialist and ask him about this? Hope this helps.
