Customer Question

I feel like something is stuck in my throat sometimes and just recently, it kind of burns in my chest when I drink hot tea, only the last few days I've noticed

Customer: I just noticed it a few days ago, when I drink hot tea it kind of feels like a burning sensation and I sometimes feel like I have something that didn't completely swallow
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Doctors generally expect a deposit of about $34 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.
