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.

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?

I am wondering if 2 head traumas with the beginning of glaucoma symptoms (pressure behind the eyes) and vision that went overnight about 7 years ago, could affect my sense of smell whichhas been mostly gone for about 6 months, although in the middle of it I had a chlorine incident where I inhaled a cloud of chlorine on accident in my kitchen. I also seem to be having reactivated mono symptoms from 12 years ago, which have occurred the first week of each month, the last 3 months, and have lasted from 5 to ten days each. My initial head injury was Jan of 1999 with unconsciousness from fall and land on base of neck, and the 2nd was about 2005 also w/ unconsciousness to the left side of head above ear, hit by police vehicle. I feel as though the symptoms may cross back and forth between head injuries and a recurring sinus/ear infection. I do not believe I have been tested for Epstein Barr disease, but am scheduling Hep C inoculation. The symptoms I have now are fatigue, general malaise, nausea,low appetite, although I can tell when I need to eat and can, can only stay awake for 3-6 hours at a time, general body weakness. Chills and fever symptoms that have subsided. Any thoughts?
