What Causes Pain In Chest While Swallowing?

when swallowing..especially chicken, pork or bread, it feels like the food gets stuck. it causes a sharp pain in the middle of my chest. If I wait a few minutes, I can feel the food move down my esophagus. Sometime the pain radiates from the center of my chest outward..front only. There are as]lso occasions where it will wake me up, feeling like there is something shifting in my chest when I rill over

i think the problem relates to your food canal or the esophagus; it could be inflamed, infected, ulcerated and even there might be a growth!

kindly go for an upper GI endoscopy that could detect the disease exactly.

all the best!
