Who else gets the cold splash in their chest while or after drinking or eating something cold? Anyone learned more about this? I have hypersensitive esophagus and so I assume it is just a part of feeling what your ordinary person doesn't...

ARM,
I make it a point not to eat/drink anything real cold, having said that I seem to recall a cool sensation at times if I do. I also have a hypersensitive esophagus. Hope all is well with you.

Hi arm since having the nissen 12 years ago I cant drink anything cold as I suffer spasms at the operation site but I have had 3 manometries and as soon as wire went down I could even eat ice cream !!

Yup - I get that sensation if I have a cold drink or ice cream or yoghurt. Sometimes it's as if I can track its progress going down and then it just seems to sit in a little cold puddle around the sternum!

I have been told I likely have hypersensitivity and a referral was made in August but I'm still waiting to be seen - not anticipating any great solutions on offer in any case!

DOGGBONES - why no cold?

A "normal" person refluxes 72 times per day. They just don't feel it. So I wonder if this is a legit symptom of reflux. Because I certaintly don't feel it even 5-10 times a day. I imagine those 72 reflux events that your normal person has per day are often while eating/right after eating. So I wonder how abnormal the cold splash feeling is.

Maybe I should go find a "norm" and ask them if they ever feel that.

My pH manometry was a big disappointment on the reflux front - nothing doing, so I think the hypersensitivity is probably a big factor for me. Just need the off switch!
