I was at dinner tonight and I started to choke. but didn t feel like anything was lodged. I almost passed out but then began breathing. this has happened to me at least a few times and it is getting scary. My father has diverticulitis and esophagitis (something where he esophagus closes) which is what this feels like. Is this hereditary? what should I do?

About two month ago my gyn told me I should see my family dr, that she felt something in my neck. Didn t make it sound like it was a rush. I am now experiencing difficulty when swallowing, feels stuck in my throat, noticed it when I am eating sandwiches. I tried to drink something to help it go down, that really burned. Now I am noticing my left side of my neck is sore to touch, not sure if I feel what the doctor said she felt. What kind of tests will the family doctor likely do? What could this be? Lastly when laying in bed at night several times I suddenly have vertigo, never had that before either. I am only 47 years old and a non smoker and have been healthy.

after a endoscopy of my stomach and esophagus, the doctor said there is a small crack in the lining of my stomach and showed me a photograph of the redness or redline taken during the procedure. He said may indicate an ulcer.

What is this most likely due to?

Hi my name is Sam, 39yr, male, i've had Barretts Esophagus for 2 years now, two months ago i suffered a muscle strain in my chest and healed, today I woke up with a sharp localized pain in the middle of my chest i thought it was like acid reflux due to my Barretts but at noon i looked and saw a pink spot where the pain is (near the opening of stomach to the right also near where i had the muscle strain near the right ribs).Please tell me what this is.

doctor1 MD

I am currently awaiting and endoscopy to see whether chest pain I have been experiencing long-term is G.E.R.D or some type of other digestional disorder. I've had pain in my left chest wall area for years, and sometimes my arm becomes very heavy and 'numb'. I get a fair bit of sputum but it is generally quite clear in colour. I've had a heart monitor and am awaiting results as I have been experiencing occassional palpitations. I get quite nauseas fairly regularly and am almost always lethargic. I've also had headaches and a stiff neck a fair bit recently but I'm unsure as to whether this is just due to sleeping position or habits. I had stomach ulcers about 10 years ago. I am now 24 years old and female.

I currently have a pin prick type pain in my rib area, down the left side which I get every now and again, but I'm not sure whether it's related.

Does it sound like the doctor is on the right track by testing me for GERD or barretts esophagus etc? Is there anything else I should be concerned about? Should I be requesting other tests? I've had blood done for Ross River Virus and Glandular fever etc, and have had chest x-rays previously, but not in a couple of years.

Also, my mother has being diagnosed recently with Hashimotos Disease (thyroid)... Is there a chance that this is what is wrong with me, despite our symptoms being different?
