Customer Question

I have s shape scoliosis right throughout my spine and especially near my neck. I have had an uncomfortable lump feeling around the centre of my chest mainly after eating for the last couple of years. Over the last couple of months it feels much worse. The lump feeling is more constant, even when I haven't eaten. This lump feeling is not so bad when i lay on my side. If I am upright or laying flat, it is very noticeable.

It could be that you may have a problem of the esophagus or possibly symptoms may relate to a hiatal hernia .. it could relate to stricture or other abnormality of the esophagus..

I would recommend that you see a gastroenterologist..

It sounds that a barium swallow study or upper GI or endoscopy may help to diagnose the source of your symptoms
