Hey guys am a 21 yrs old male medical student.I am well and healthy and never been seriously sick or admitted in hospital.My Question is...one month ago I was eating and swallowed the food quickly without chewing properly.....after this, I now experience some very mild irritation on the right distal end of my esophagus.This only happens when I drink cold fluids and preservative juice,not fresh juice but the kind you buy in the supermarket.
This irritation is also not affected by solid foods,hot drinks like tea.
The irritation tends to go away after drinking cold beer.

I am a social drinker,one beer in a month and I do not smoke.

Am a medical student,and with all this cancers,I must say am worried!:(Should i go to a doctor!

ps:the irritation is decreasing with time.
