just wanting to know whether a GI series would show esophagitis. Just recently had one which confirmed that I had GERD.  Now feeling all sorts of weird pains.  Other than that diagnosis everything looked ok....no strictures. Now just wondering whether I could have esophagitis.
Any advice

Esophagitis refers to inflammation and irritation that occurs in the lower esophagus.  It is the upper GI series that will most often reveal this condition.
Good Luck and take care,
