Try a magnesium suppliment, I had issues with esophageal spams and it has helped me. Also chewing non mint gum has helped.

You should get an endoscopy and go through the testing, but in the meantime, see if the magnesium and gum works. Also work on your diet: low fat, low carb, low sugar, low acid. Stay away from trigger foods.
Diagnosed GERD, no other medical conditions (this one is enough)

Guy,

Have you had this reaction to food long? Is it all foods, just dry foods, or maybe only certain foods? Is this something new or maybe a reaction to a new food?

I get esophageal spasms, reflux from food allergies/intolerances. My worst reactions cause rapid heart beats - tachycardia - enough to send me to the hospital a few times. I kept a food journal/diary for several months on advice from my allergist and found my list of "trigger" foods.

I also have a weak swallow and get some foods and medicines stuck part way down. Water isn't much help but sometimes milk washes things down better. I have learned to butter tablets and drink while eating.

Guy,

while it is not normal to lose 13 pounds in 1 week it;s not going to kill you or anything - it is most likely mostly water weight. From reading your post you said you are little overweight which may be greatly contributing to your problem. Try to eat healthy and lose the weight. I see you eat a lot of oatmeal, fruits white rice etc - it's fine to eat those but they are loaded with carbs and will not really help you lose weight. What you need to eat is a balanced diet that includes low carb, low fat and high protein. If you will have 1/2 cup of rice (make it a brown rice) have baked or grilled chicken breast with it - if you eat oatmeal, eat it with milk and maybe some egg whites - fruits with protein shakes or greek yogurt or cottage cheese etc. And drink a lot of water. Also you will need to excersise daily - it helps with overall health and helps to move food along. And not 15 minutes 3 times a day - you need more like intense 45 minute workouts consisting of weight training and cardio 4-5 times a week so you can lose the unhealthy weight.

As far as bloating, you should schedule appointment with gastro doctor to do endoscopy and see what's going on - just because you are bloated and feel full doesn't mean you have cancer - you may have gastritis or esophagitis and medication should take care of it in few weeks.

I hope this helps and you feel better soon.
