Sharp pain in my chest

I just recently have been having a weird feeling in my chest. Every time I swallow regardless of what it is, I have a weird feeling in my chest, it is kind of a sharp pain. I don't know what it is.

Hi,
Welcome to Healthcaremagic forum,
The causes of pain in the chest after swallowing the food are numerous , some of the common being GERD,Oesophageal varicies, Barrett's oesophagus ,or even oesophageal cancers. Best way to get to the diagnosis would be by an Upper GI endoscopy.The test will provide pictures of the inner lumen of the oesophagus.

Hello,
Do you have any other symptoms ? Does the pain radiate/refer to any other area ?
