What causes nausea and chills along with burning sensation in the esophagus?

I have been having nausea, chills and the feeling that I have swallowed something that just didn't make it down my throat. There is a burning sensation in my esophagus. It passes after I lay down for a little while, but I have noticed more fatigue than previously. I have acid reflux and take omerprozole for that, but this is not the symptoms I had before my reflux was diagnosed.

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

In severe case of acid peptic disease it is the symptoms as you have stated here, it is the hyperacidity, the given symptoms are due to hyperacidity only and it may not be anything else, Omeprazole is the best drug of choice and it has to be continued for few weeks, great care needs to be taken in diet like avoid taking heavy meal, spicy food, junk food, avoid taking coffee, smoking, alcohol prior to bed.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

I have this uncomfortable quivering or shaking in my body that sometimes causes nausea feeling, I have had a back injury years ago and neck issues, but never felt this quivering sensation. is it a pinched nerve there is no severe pain like when I had the injury. I move my back around and I hear a snap or a click sound and then it seems to go away, but not for very long before it can come back, making it difficult to sleep at night a lot.

Good afternoon! I am wondering....2 evenings ago I suddenly had a strange sensation that made me feel like I had to go to the washroom (pee). When I did, it didn t burn per say, but there was a super strong strange sensation that went through my entire body, even giving me chills. It was NOT a nice feeling! Within a few minutes the feeling came back and I had to run to the washroom again. Very little urine, but same strong pain . Every evening for the past 2 days, this has happened and I m now feeling it again. When the feeling to pee comes it can feel like pressure and I HAVE TO get to the washroom. Again, it s not a burning feeling, it s more of a pressure feeling. Yet at other times during the day, all is normal. Could this be an infection? I feel fine, so far? Stones in the bladder? I have had kidney stones before and every now and then mild kidney stone pain.

Hello? I was in the woods and found some bird feather, realized the bird feathers had saliva on them but I did wipe it off on my jacket. After a while I forgot and stuck that same finger in my mouth to find wind direction, immediately realizing I shouldn t have. I have severe pain and bubbling sensation in my small intestines, no fever, chills, nausea, no vomiting and I have been sleeping over 18 hours a day. This being the 2nd day I am dealing with a lot of strange activity in my small intestines making me very emotional. Please help, what is wrong with me?
