Hello...Im new to this and thought I would try to get some answers to whats been going with me the last couple of days.  It seems very odd to me but maybe there is someone out there that knows what Im talking about and can give me some answers.  A couple of days ago I was eating and out of the blue it felt like my food lodged (it was only toast and oatmeal).  I thought it would pass in a few minutes but it hasnt.  It feels like I have a lump in my throat and when I eat or drink like it wont go down.  I never have heartburn or a bitter taste in my mouth, so Im not sure if these symptoms are part of GERD or not.  When I looked online, this seemed to come the closest to the way I feel.  I also burp alot especially after eating.  I will probably go to the doctor but would like to know if anyone can give me some info before I do.  Thanks!!

Hi there. I have only just seen this hence the lateness! Trouble swallowing was my very first symptom of GERD. I stayed with just that symptom for about a year. It then got gradually worse and other symptoms made themselves apparent (like chest pressure, heartburn, asthma, burning throat). Get yourself checked out as soon as possible 'cos I suffered for years not knowing what was wrong with me.

Let us know how you get on! :-)
