As soon as I eat/drink any food, within minutes, I get head pressure/headache, chest tightness, and anxiety. This happens with anything I eat or drink. Water is the only exception.

Doctors ruled out acid reflux, gastric motility disorders, food allergies and cardiac problems.

Does anybody experience this? Any suggestions please.

Thank you very much.

Welcome, but I'm sorry you're joining us under such rough conditions.

I don't have the symptoms you describe, but I get chest tightness (followed by anxiety about that) seemingly from LPR, reflux into the throat. My original GI doctor insisted twice that I didn't have reflux, but an ENT easily diagnosed it via a different scope procedure. How is it that your docs have tested you for reflux?

I do hope you get some good answers and propertreatment soon!
