Taken anti-acid medicine after choking on steak. Chest pain, painful breathing. What can I do?

Hi I swallowed a big piece of steak last night which caused me to choke, some of the food came up but the steak felt like it was stuck in my esophagus , it was really painful and I couldnt keep any water down after. I took some anti acid medicine and eventually I felt the steak shift and I could take water. Today I have really bad chest pains, it even hurts when I breathe deap, it feels like my espohagus is continuinely in a spasm . I am in a lot of pain, what can I do?

Pulmonologist 's  Response
Injury, inflammation, ulceration to your lower eating pipe sphincter leading to incontinence of the sphincter and hence reflux of stomach contents as well as compensatory esophageal spasms causing pain. Visit a gastroenterologist and ask for a cure. meanwhile have liquid diet, avoid lying down post meals, avoid spicy foodstuff, avoid large meals.
