Hello. My name is Chye and this is my first post here. I am most appreciative for all comments offered.
2 months ago, I started having food stuck on my throat after almost every meal. Sometimes, it was merely a sensation but often time, it was really food stuck there.
I was very worried about it and so had an EGD done 2 weeks ago. The GI doctor found nothing abnormal except for a stomach infection which I am presently taking medication for it. I was also told I had a mild GERD and that my esophagus was narrow. He dilated it with a balloon during the EGD.
However, the same problem (food stuck) remains. I have no problem eating (or swallowing) but food particles are always stuck in my throat after the last mouthful. If I am lucky, I am able to spit them out. Otherwise, they will remain there for a few days.
Other symptoms include sore throat and slight acid reflux. I do not have heartburn.
My question. Am I suffering from GERD?
