pain as food finds its way to my stomach

I'm pretty sure I suffer from GERD as well, due to pain in my throat, but I've found that I've been able to begin to improve the throat pain and trouble swallowing by not eating after 7 p.m. and quitting coffee. The problem with pain as food passes by a spot in my esophagus has me a bit concerned. Anyone out there with a similar problem? It feels like it is just as food is entering my stomach and is worse with acidy foods and more rigid foods like tortilla chips.

  • sometime food may cause the stomach pain. i've read in a journal that Multi-ingredient antacids (Maalox, Mylanta, others) in liquid or tablet form are a common treatment for indigestion. Antacids neutralize stomach acid and can provide fast pain relief.
