I've been diagnosed with GERD for about a year - and I've displayed all the classic symptoms - many of which seem to come and go for no apparent reason.
I'm currently on Prilosec 2 x 20 mg daily and it controls things pretty well except on some of my more "stressful" days.
Over the past few days and a couple other times in the past I've had a strange sensation that typically occurrs when I drink hot or cold fluids (typically more noticeable with cold drinks) - I can feel the fluid go down thru my esophagus and into my upper part of my stomach with sort of a slight burning sensation that "cascades" downward as the fluid goes down.
Has anyone else encountered this - would it be indicative of esophagitis, gastritis, both ?  It's a pretty strange and somewhat unsettling feeling...
P.S.  I have a GI app't next week so I'm definitely going to mention this - just thought I'd get some opinions from others who may have encountered this...
Thanks in advance for any replies.

When I drink very cold soda I may get a burning sensation like heart burn as the fluid goes down.

Good idea to talk with your physician about this.

Take care
