What causes discomfort in the esophagus?

I am 43, female, about 179 lbs., 5'5". Two weeks had bronchitis, seems to have cleared. Having symptoms off and on of feeling like asthma is flaring and food going down slowly through lower esophagus and chest and feeling of something at the base of esophagus sometimes. Have been taking OTC omeprazole for several days. Scoped several years ago, but only found to have gastritis, no reflux evidence on scope. No burning sensation or pain like heartburn.
