If I drink cold apple juice or water, I feel it get cold right on the spot I usually feel heartburn. I don't remember feeling cold there in my pre-GERD days. Could it be that the tissue is more sensitive? As in hypersensitive esophagus?

Sometimes if I burp after drinking something cold I'll feel the cold on the same heartburn spot just as if I were just drinking it.

Yeah, I get that too. Not really sure what's going on with it, but I know it's different from a burning feeling.

I get the exactly the same thing! Could it be the ppi's?

When I drink something cold I can feel all the way down into my stomach. I never had this pre GERD either.

I've been wrapped, and if I drink cold water, I can feel it at the wrap site...

I wonder if it is because the tissue there is more sensitive post-GERD. I guess its one of those small things that we may never know the answer to.
