I HAVE WHAT FEELS LIKE AN AIR LOCK IN MY CHEST IT IS QUITE PAINFUL WHEN I EAT OR DRINK WHAT COULD IT BE
DearCustomer
Hello.I feel that you are having a oesophageal spasm/oesophagitis.I would suggest a prokinetic drug like Metoclopamide or Domperidon,aPPI like Rabeprazole,Sucralfate would help.If the pain persists a few doses of Isosrbide can be tried to relax the spasm.The prokinetic and Sucralfate are to be taken before meals.Plan on getting a upper GIt Endoscopy done as also an ECG to rule out any cardiac problems.
