Re: Some advice
Dec 5, 2006
There is a muscle flap called a lower-esophogeal sphincter located at the end of your esophagus where the entrance of your stomach is. The sphincter's job is to prevent acid and other stomach contents from backflowing into your esophagus. In people with reflux, this sphincter does not work the way it is supposed to and is either too loose or doesn't close all the way, or something like that. Thus the recurrent burning sensations and other symptoms which arise when acid and partially-digested food is constantly being allowed to come back up the throat.

You should really go see a doctor. I'm not sure if what you have is reflux, some of what you're describing sounds like something completely different, although I could be wrong. When in doubt, ask a professional!
