Hi there,

This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.

I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

The stuck on feeling is due to the inflammation of the esophagus or food passage from acid reflux.

Treatment with adequate dose of PPI like omeprazole or pantoprazole for 3 to 4 months should resolve the issue.

You should also follow a good diet --avoid caffeine, high fat containing food, spicy food, alcohol as much as possible.

Liquid antacids like Maalox also can be used as needed along with omeprazole or pantoprazole.

Best wishes,

It was my pleasure to help you today.
